How to fix lowercase to small caps/conversion issues in Microsoft Word 2007 for certain unicode characters with diacritics?

I have a text (MS Word 2007) that cites Vietnamese authors whose names are written in latin script with diacritics, stored in Zotero in lowercase (with the initial in uppercase). When using a citation style (for footnotes and bibliography) with small caps/uppercase for the names, Word keeps some characters in lowercase: "Dương Thiệu Tống" shows up as "DƯƠNG THIệU TốNG" instead of "DƯƠNG THIỆU TỐNG". How to fix this? [more inside]

Megan, write this down: "Dear the Man from U.N.C.L.E. ..."

Back when people still used handwriting for pretty much everything, what did they do for acronyms and initialisms? I'm just having a hard time imagining the Palmer uppercase forms being used to spell out NATO or AT&T or the like. Any pictorial examples would be especially appreciated.
