Summary0000167: Link to extension docs in phrase problem message uses the wrong capitalization for author and extension names
DescriptionIn problem explanations such as:

Problem. You wrote 'foo 54' , but '54' has the wrong kind of value: a number rather than a text.

I was trying to match this phrase:

foo (54 - text) [e]

The "[e]" is an orange link to the extension documentation. When hovering over this link, the extension and author name appear as a tooltip, but the names are converted to title case: in this example it says "Crazycaps by Unusually Capitalized Name".
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
=== CrAzYcApS.i7x ===

CrAzYcApS by UNUSUALLY caPitAlized namE begins here.

To foo (bar - text): do nothing.

CrAzYcApS ends here.

=== Game source text ===

Include CrAzYcApS by UNUSUALLY caPitAlized namE.

Home is a room.

When play begins: foo 54.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded

This probably has something to do with abbreviations being converted to titlecase, as in the extension "AWOL Milkmen" being transformed into "Awol Milkmen".

This really does push the definition of "bug" to its limits, but then again, it took only eight keystrokes to "fix". Done.
