My coworkers and I are once again trying to decide whether to
use lowercase or initial capital letters with bulleted list items.
Typically we use initial capitals on the first words of independent
clauses and noun phrases and use all lowercase for dependent clauses that
complete a preceding sentence. I've been over this territory a number of times,
and I'd like to settle this issue once and for all.

So here are my questions: What guidelines do you use for initial capitals in
bulleted lists, and what reasoning led you to make your decision?
