The title case rules for writing a title or heading result in most words being capitalized.
The alternative is sentence case where most words are not capitalized, that is, in lower case.
The title case rules for a title or heading are:
First method (probably the easiest)
You can type the titles or headings using the title case rules above.
This is the most common way.
Just be careful in following the title case rules.
Second method using Word
Word does not convert text to title case.
The best Word can do is capitalize the first letter of every word (see Figure 1).
This of course means that the first letter of minor words (like 'and,' 'but,' 'at') will be capitalized.
You will need to change back those first letters of minor words to lower case.
This method can be useful if you have a long heading or title that needs converting to title case.
Third method using a converter
There are tools available to automatically convert text to title case.
Find one such tool here (opens in new window).
This appears to work quite well.
However, I would quickly check the result.
If you have already typed the title or heading in title case, you could use this tool to check that your title follows the title case rules.
I suggest you reread the title case rules above.
You will find it easy to write title case headings and titles once you become familiar with the rules.
