Dear all,
My personal preference is for lower case unless it is a proper noun (eg,
"short", "long", "Esperanza Formation", "Mesozoic").

Subject: [GeoSciML] Vocabulary terms - sentence case or lower case?
[SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Dear vocabulary folk,

Could I get a measure of whether people use (or prefer) lower case or
sentence case for vocabulary term preferred labels? eg, "brittle
deformation" or "Brittle deformation"; "lithostratigraphic unit" or
"Lithostratigraphic unit"?  In my investigations of vocabularies from many
sources, I have seen no consistency.

Can the vocabulary working group come to a consensus that we can adopt?

Cheers,
Ollie

PS. My personal preference is for lower case unless it is a proper noun (eg,
"short", "long", "Esperanza Formation", "Mesozoic").
