Claire Conant wondered: <<We had a similar debate this morning regarding a term we use here: Digeo portal. The debate is whether to capitalize portal. I've been editing it as capitalized, considering it a brand name or trademark, but I'd like to know what you think.>>

If the full legal name is "Digeo Portal", then both parts are proper nouns and must be capped. If not, then not. <g> Here's an example that shows the difference: "The Digeo Portal(TM) software is Digeo's portal solution, and it competes favorably with MS Portal(R), Microsoft's portal solution."
