there are primitives with those names.  they're not very satisfying in
some cases (e.g., \uppercase won't convert \oe to \OE).

the corresponding latex macros are \MakeUppercase and \MakeLowercase;
these deal with issues like \oe<->\OE.

david carlisle's textcase package adds various improvements (doesn't
change case of maths for example).
