      Yes, I was aware of that, especially after looking over the list of names in the Manhattan phone book. But there's so much that needs to be considered that would require a great deal of code. I simply included the most common exceptions to work by, and asked the user to add a ~ for bypassing the rule. If you have more rules, you could list them and ask the user if he wants to make certain exceptions.

      I also wrote a similar program (in VB) to use Title Case for titles of books, etc. If you Google "Title Case" you will find a confusing array of rules for which words should be left in lowercase. This is even more challenging than the program for proper name case.

      Zack, you may want to try that version next.
