tested in Memo Pad and it worked as written, albeit with the doubletap John Clark described. was also able to initiate in Calendar, but could not do so from within the Address Book. however, once the CAPS LOCK is initiated it does appear to remain indefinitely, even moving from app to app, but will be disabled by pressing CAPS again.
whammy: the keypad punctuation characters cannot be typed while CAPS LOCK is enabled, as pressing the ALT key will switch to NUM mode.
excellent find, and despite the punctuation issue (a manageable quirk), quite usable. mebbe we oughta keep this kinda hush-hush though, as RIM might decide to fix this "bug".
thanks for the heads up, Graf!
