    Title Case vs. Sentence case

    Of course there is no clear standard on how this should be done but you can read more about it.

    You can just pick one and stick with it.

      I didn't realize all the variation that exists, but it makes sense now! My boss uses start case (capitalization of all words, regardless of the part of speech) and I tend to capitalize the first word, and all other words except for articles, prepositions, conjunctions, and forms of to be.

      In general, I don't think it matters too much as long as there is some measure of consistency. Unfortunately, one of our taglines is "it's better in the...." and depending on who started the file, we capitalize it differently. He does "It's Better In The..." and I do "It's Better in the..."
