In the last two days I've started 2 new topics, both get the same error in the title. If you type something like "I'm happy" in the title, including the quotation marks, the I shows up as i and the next words start with a capital instead. Can a mod fix this for me please? It looks like a grammar error now.

The 2 topics are:

27, F, from the beautiful area of Twente in the Netherlands. English is not my first language, so I apologize for any errors.

Symptoms started in 2007, but no link to celiac disease was found until 2009. I learned of celiac disease through the internet, my doctor never recognized it. She put me on a diet before tests were done, so the initial tests failed. My GI advised me to do a gluten provocation, which had to be stopped too soon to take a reliable biopsy. Based on symptoms such as vitamin deficiencies, GI problems and osteopenia my diagnosis now is: glutenintolerant, suspected celiac disease. This diagnosis was in march 2010, and I've been so much better ever since.

Well, isn't that strange! I've reported this so hopefully Peter can fix it. I don't have that kind of power. :P

I know my iPad automatically corrects capatialization. If I hit to capitalize but the iPad was going to capitalize, like the beginning of a quote, it thinks I'm overriding it and doesn't capitalize. If I hit capitalize for the word I'm, it won't.

Clear as mud? Maybe that 's what's happening?

All my posts were typed on a pc computer in a normal browser, so I don't think it's a software error. It seems as if all words typed in the topic title are auto-capitalised by the forum. Look at the title above. Maybe that's where things went wrong: the I has been un-capitalised.

There are some things the board is programmed to do automatically.

One of them is to enforce the case in the title such that the first character in every space-delimited token is upper case, and the rest are all lower case. This prevents "shouting" in topic titles. But it can cause confusion when a token begins with a punctuation mark, or contains an abbreviation or acronym correctly presented in all caps, such as MSG.

I have fixed the two titles in question.

It makes sense now... Thank you :)
