Please let's not start in on this again.

The reference from Karel van der Waarde:
> Robert Bringhurst (1996) The elements of typographic style, second edition.
> Published by Hartley & Marks
is definitive.
Bringhurst's work should be on every technical communicator's bookshelf.
Not only does it help if you are ever "setting classical Latin and Greek,
romanized Sanskrit, phonetics or other kinds of texts in which sentences
begin with lowercase letters", but it is beautifully written, and remarkably
succint.
