It's also because many companies still think programmers, with the aid of a
good secretary (often no-so-good) can put together a useful manual.

I can tell you that I often play fast and loose with initial caps when I'm in
the initial stages of a document, and if I had a good editor, I'd probably be
lazier about going back in and using search and replace to standardize them
