Re: [xanadu] questions about formatting in Xanadu

Hi Jack,

I know, I think, what the plan for capitalization was, because we had
it implemented in Gzz at some point.

For example, if it is attempted to automatically
capitalize the first letter of the first word of a sentence, but
change the case if that word is moved to the middle of the sentence,
that would not work for proper names or acronyms.

You would type in a capital letter for acronyms and proper names even
at the beginning of a sentence. People would be expected to get used
to it.

The way sentences are delimited is by putting two spaces between them,
but only one between words. The first letter after a sentence break
would be shown capitalized even if it was stored as small caps

Xanadu may have been different, of course, but I believe the above
design came from Ted.
