Ø  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").
