Subject:Heading and Title Capitalization From:Lisa Kemp <lnk -at- ONTARIO -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 1 Mar 1999 09:55:11 -0500
Our team is considering adopting a standard to capitalize only the first
word in a title or heading within our manuals. This consideration is based
on a suggestion at a DTP seminar. I would like to get some feedback about
this proposal before I present my stance to the group.
The reasons given for adopting this new standard are:
* It's easier to type.
* It eliminates "significant word" confusion.
* We use this style for bulleted lists.
