    Default Capitalization

    Hello,


    Should 'You' be capitalized in formal writing ?

    Thanks

    No, unless it's the first word in a sentence - and even then it's only the first letter that is capitalised.

    ps. It can't be capitalised in speech, only in writing.

    And it was never capitalized before, right?

    IT may have been at some time in the past - I don't know. It certainly has not been for many years.
