Consistency of heading capitalisation

Jump to: navigation, search

Most of the headings in the draft code are written with the first letter of each major word capitalised, but a few are not. For consistency all of the titles should be written in the same style.

I would have just revised the few that were different, except that I've noticed that there is somewhat of a de facto style on WikiEducator of capitalising only the first word in a title or heading, e.g., Open Community Governance Policy (Draft 2). I've come to prefer this style.

Any objection to my revising the headings to only capitalise first letter of first word?

No objection from me. For this page especially the (hopefully self-explanatory) Table of Contents will read better with the convention you suggest.

There may be occasions when capitalising each word in a heading is appropriate (e.g. when the heading is also a title such as "WikiEducator Community Council" or "Deputy Chair", etc.).

Good. I made the changes.

I agree about proper names being capitalised in the heading. A style guideline addressing capitalisation was proposed awhile back. The style guideline workgroup fell into disuse after Jesse Groppi discontinued her work in WE.
