Capital Letters

  • WG11: We must capitalize (a) the first word of a sentence, (b) the pronoun I, (c) proper nouns (i.e., the names of specific people, organizations, places and sometimes things), (d) titles (e.g., professions) preceding names, (e) the days of the week, holidays and the months of the year, (f) nationalities and specific languages, (g) members of social, national, political, civic, racial and athletic groups (e.g., Democrats), (h) periods and events (e.g., Great Depression), and (i) trademarks.

  • WG12: We must present the names of our solutions and services with initial capital letters (e.g., Continuous Hacking).

  • WG13: We must use initial capital letters in section and subsection titles (following APA standards), and not in internal subtitles.

  • WG14: We must not use sustained capital letters to emphasize a word or phrase, nor mix them with bold or italics.

  • WG15: We must capitalize the first letter of a quote when it is a complete sentence (e.g., (...) as Cimpanu in The Record says, "While the forum is publicly accessible (...)."), as opposed to when it is only a sentence fragment (e.g., (...) that's why people say it's "free data" in almost all the sources I checked.). When the quote is interrupted, we must begin its second part with a lowercase letter (e.g., "I did not want to commit this crime," said Mr. Allen, "but an internal force compelled me to do it.").
