    Capital letters in a title...

    A title like "Home-based", does the "b" in based need a capital "B"? Could someone give the rule of thumb?

    thank you

    Welcome, quemick.

    hyphenated compounds
    When capitalization is called for, always capitalize the first element. Capitalize the second element if it is a noun or a proper adjective or if it has equal force or value of the first element.
