Kathleen MacDowell wonders: <<Is anyone familiar with the use of the term Logic Engine and when it shoud be given initial caps? A document I'm working on is using the term in a generic sense (no specific type of Logic Engine such as ALE).>>

If it's not being used as a proper noun, then there's no justification for capping it other than in a heading style that uses initial caps. That's the standard English spelling rule, and like all grammatical rules, you should only break it if you have a good reason to do so.
