Hi all,

I have some country names in a data set.  I want to convert the names
in the variable "country" from all upper case to first letter upper and
the rest lower (e.g., "ALBANIA"becomes "Albania").  I have found the
string functions lower and upper, but I don't see any option to convert
just the first letter.  Any help would be much appreciated.
