Hi theMax! I corrected spelling errors in the title thread. Remember even though we're learning Spanish, we have the opportunity to show the English learners proper spelling and punctuation. ;-) - chaparrito, ENE 14, 2010

It´s generally used ´usted´. If you use the abbreviation you always have to use the period and the capital u. That´s the norm. However, you may find abbreviations without capital letter but the period should be always written to denote it´s an abbreviation, like in Sr., Sra., Srta.
