The library rules for title case are even more complicated than that. I learned that you capitalize the first and last words, even if they ARE prepositions or articles. You're right in that the edge cases like apostrophes and multiple capitals (e.g., "McDonald's") are annoyingly complicated to get right.

For my website, I have a "turn filenames into titles" function. For example, a-sunrise-to-remember.jpg becomes "A Sunrise to Remember" which uses a small canned list of the most common prepositions and articles (including a few in Spanish). Every once in a while, I find I have to add yet another special case.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
