    Wink Capitalisation

    When writing headings or titles should I make the first letter of the first word a capital letter, or make the first letter of every word a capital letter?

    Default Re: Capitalisation

    Titles for literary works -- books, songs, plays etc -- are capitalised according to the following rules:

    The first letter is always capitalised.

    Proper nouns are always capitalised (as you'd expect).

    Most other words are capitalised except for short words which have a purely grammatical function.

    Here are some examples:

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    Gone with the Wind
    The Wind in the Willows
    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
    The Colour of Magic

    Thank you!! . But what about headings and titles for non fictious pieces of work? e.g. problems along the way: starvation and drought? Thanks again!!
