Title: newbie question: how do i capitalize text?
Becuase XML is case sensetive,  a transformation of case is semantically equivalent to transforming to a new string.  As far as I know,  there is no XSL functionality to easily convert from one to the other. 
Becuase I can see you are wanting an HTML output,  I would presume the end user of your data is using a browser.
Accordingly, I would suggest that your best (and probably the most elegant solution) would be to employ a third party scripting language like _javascript_.   I believe the function is String.toUpperCase()
Use the following wrapper for any _javascript_ within an XSL stylesheet:

Is it possible to capitalize some text that my xsl file selects from xml?

If I have some XML like:
        <GREETING>Hello World!</GREETING>

and some XSL like:
<b><xsl:value-of select="GREETING"/></b>

Is there any way to capitalize the result of <xsl:value-of select="GREETING"/> so I get "HELLO WORLD!" instead of "Hello World!"?
