For this reason, I'd say there is a mistake in Jack's last example because the word "and" is capitalized.
Say: words in bold, words in bold type/print, words in boldface
The adjective can be boldface or boldfaced, but not bolded.
Here we often use 'emboldened' as well.
You are correct about short, coordinating conjunctions. I read a rule a while back that recommends capitalizing prepositions and conjunctions of five or more letters. There are other "rules" that may be different. :wink:Originally Posted by Susie Smith
I know one that says prepositions of four or more letters should be capitalized. :wink:Originally Posted by MikeNewYork
