lower case label tags

I cant get the label tags to recognize lower case lettering.
example: when I am laying out devices, such as fire alarm devices, under the ID, I entered 110cd. When I place a label tag on the device, it is displayed as 110CD it will not come in lower case. The only ways I have been able to make this work is to use a the "Light Fixture Tag", go into the attribute and change it. The other way is to use plain old text. Unfortunately if you change the device ID, the tag or text will not reflect that change. What do I need to do to make these tags use lower case as well as upper case and reflect changes of the ID # if changed?

Format -> Style Manager -> Documentation Objects -> Property Data Formats ->
and highlight Case - Upper Press Ctrl-C Ctrl-V to copy it. Highlight Case
Upper (2) and press F2. Type in Case - AsIs. Double click on Case - AsIs ->
Formatting Tab left column, about 1/2 way down set text to AsIs and click
OK.

Back in style manager go to Documentation Objects -> Property Set
Definitions and double click Light Object. Click the Definition tab and find
ID in the list and highlight it. In the lower right portion of the dialog
change format to Case - AsIs. Click OK.
