Capitalise the first letter only of the first word and of any proper nouns in a heading, and leave all of the other letters in lower case. This style is called "sentence case" and it is the stylistic preference of this wiki.

All headings — and headers include titles — should be in sentence case. Keeping things this way means that our readers will enjoy a consistent experience. But it also has several technical benefits.

Occasionally, we significantly restyle the wiki. We may go from headers that are styled upper-case to ones that are not. So even if you're seeing all upper case, remember that they aren't actually typed in upper case. They're just upper case as the result of a single line in our CSS. By keeping your headers in sentence case, we have the freedom to easily restyle the wiki.

Another thing to consider is sectional linking, which is case-sensitive. Editors should be able to count upon the fact that headers are in sentence case so that they can reliably link to sections.

Here are some examples:
