I should look at the code, but I'm hoping that everything
like this is generated by some routine that has a
"capitalize" flag turned on.  I'd just like to turn it
off.

Note that I'm mostly whining.  I really should look in
the code and get a clue, but it'd be great if someone
would say something like "Oh, yeah, just set
'capitalize_everything' to 'off'..."  (I suspect that'd
be right next to the "random apostrophe's" setting.)

Can you tell I'm getting bogged down right before a
deadline?

Thanks.

Hi Kyler,

AFAIK, there is no routine which capitalizes the words in management tabs.
They just all happen to be capitalized literally.  Is this what you mean?

Yeah, tabs and everywhere else.  I was guessing that
some routine was responsible because I see things
like "id" changed to "Id".  I wouldn't expect a 
human to do that.

Oh, well.  I wanted to know if there was an obvious
answer that I was missing.  It wasn't the answer I
wanted, but I appreciate it.

Thanks.

i can't tell you where to look, but as for "what" 
to look for, try searching for:

 string.capwords(

or, in dtml entity syntax:

 dtml.capitalize-

good luck!

   Digital Creations

Zope and Digital Creations are probably the only two that should be
capitalized in any context, but IMO all of the others are correctly
capitalized in the context of a tab, since the label of a tab is along the
lines of a title, which is correct to capitalize.  Also, in a sentence when
referring to a label or tab, it would be correct to capitalize.  I happen to
think it's eaiser to read that way, but I suppose reasonable people might
disagree.
