Introduction

This is just the beginning of a writer's guide for the MDC. If you have questions about usage and style that aren't covered there, I recommend referring to the Economist style guide or, failing that, the Chicago Manual of Style.

Page name and heading capitalization

Page names and section headings should use sentence style capitalization (only capitalize the first word and any proper nouns) rather than headline style capitalization:

  • Correct: "A new method for creating JavaScript rollovers"
  • Incorrect: "A New Method for Creating JavaScript Rollovers"
