This must be the reason why one of my friends NEVER capitalizes any word in
her emails, not the first letter of a sentence, not even our names. On the
other hand, IT ALSO MAKES A GOOD EXCUSE TO USE THE FLAMER'S TRICK AND
CAPITALIZE **^^$%##EVERY&^$^&* THING.
Seriously, you don't really have friends coming up to you to actually
complain about this, do you? Have you tried gently suggesting that they need
to take up a hobby? Preferably a mentally challenging one. dAGUERREOTYPES
wouldn't be bad, although tHE vAN dYKE pROCESS probably also would keep them

Subject: Proper use of grammar when naming processes?
I've never really thought about this before and my own use of grammar is
horrible so I'm getting opinions from all of you. When naming a process
is named after someone, do you capitalize it? For example, I make black
white prints (not Black and White prints) so do I also make van dyke
Is it different if I'm talking about the Van Dyke process though? Same
Daguerreotypes (or is it daguerreotypes?).
Any thoughts out there?
