    Is "as" usually capitalized in titles/headings?

    Thanks!

    Re: As

    When it's the first word, yes; otherwise, not usually.

    Jasmin,


    According to The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage (1999):

    (1) In headlines, capitalize all nouns, pronouns and verbs, and

    all other words of four or more letters.

    (2) Therefore, lowercase [except if it's the first word, I assume]:

    a and as at but [and 13 other short words]

    (a) The exception to the rule: Do capitalize

    No
    Nor
    Not
    Off
    Out
    So
    Up

    THANK YOU & HAPPY NEW YEAR
