^$Character ( charsetexpr , expr1 V "UPPER" ) = expr2 V algoref

Editor's note:
Suggest to include an example similar in hte previous clauses:

The result of a conversion to lower or upper case for a character set may be evaluated by executing the expression:

("S result="_lower_"(string)")
("S result="_upper_"(string)")
