( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I was talking to a friend today, about the Learning Perl book and he asked me why is brian d foy name allways writen in lower case trought all the book (and on Wikipedia also!!!). I'm really curious about this, and would love to read the wisdom from the ancient monks from this noble monastery. Anyone have a convincing explanation for this?

Mr brian d foy, please answer this post in black-background, so everybody have his/her own chance to explain why your name is writen brian d foy and not Brian D'Foy, or something like.
