Replace UPPER with lower?

Does Calibre not have a replacement expression to replace a match with the lowercase version of the match? I've tried the usual regex means of doing so (\L&, e.g.), and nothing seems to work.

I really don't want to use regex functions (and have to write a function) to do something this trivial, so I assume I'm missing something. I've read the pertinent section of the user's guide, and don't see anything mentioned there, either. (I searched for "lower" everywhere in the regex page.)

I'm still curious about affecting case in replacement expressions (seems an odd omission in this day and age), but I see that function replacements has a built-in to do what I want. So, never mind, sorry for the noise.

I have a similar problem. I have a book that has roman numerals for chapter numbers. Some of the characters in the chapter number have been scanned as lower case and I would like to convert them to upper. I use Regex search as ([xXvViIlL]+) which finds the chapter numbers. I cannot find the correct replacement string to convert the resulting \1 to upper case. Any help would be appreciated
