Dear Librarians, I

know it is only a small issue but I feel like my fellow country men sometimes get confused with English. However, when you type a title in Dutch only the first word has a capital (besides names and places of course). For example:

De jokkende joker

I know it is a non-issue, but it rubs me wrong. I am normally very mellow, but when it comes to archiving I am a stickler...

Thank you!

Moloch | 3044 comments I have just found another edit by a librarian putting capital letters in all the initials in an Italian book title. I won't bother flagging because it's from 2016, but please don't, not all languages follow the same conventions as English.
