|Priority||normal||Severity||mild||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0002066: 'Sentence case' surprisingly de-capitalizes proper nouns|
|Description||For Cragne Manor, we had the attached 'minimal source text'. What was supposed to happen was that you could either have:|
"the insignia of the Backwater Public Library"
"The insignia of the Backwater Public Library".
However, the second turned into:
"The insignia of the backwater public library".
However! If you had the original as:
"The Insignia Of The Backwater Public Library"
you *would* want what you got as the 'sentence case' version of that sentence. Similarly, it behaves as expected for:
"THE INSIGNIA OF THE BACKWATER PUBLIC LIBRARY".
So! I propose that 'sentence case' does the following:
* If every word in the original text has the same capitalization (all caps, initial caps, or no caps), that it change it to first-word-initial-caps, other-words-lower-case.
* Otherwise, it changes it to first-word-initial-caps, other-words-original-caps.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
To say library insignia: say "the insignia of the Backwater Public Library[one of], two back-to-back crescent moons joined by an eye looking down at an open book[or][stopping]". To say Library insignia: let the result be "[library insignia]" in sentence case; say the result.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves|
I agree that the original behavior was surprising, but I assert that the proposed behavior would be confusing and more surprising (a lot of the time).
There could be a new phrase which just applies sentence-case to the first word of the string and leaves the rest of it unchanged.
