    Question You/She/He started with a capital

    Is it correct to start You, He, She, etc., with a capital letter, provided that it does not begin the sentence? In some languages it is a polite form, and what about in English?

    Best,
    Nyggus

    Re: You/She/He started with a capital

    No. When talking about God, Jesus, etc, you will see some using 'He', but that's about it. Sometimes in adverts, you will see captials being used, but it's not a general pattern.
