Do you know how to capitalize headings and titles?

​It is important to use correct capitalization when writing titles/headings for things.

"The Lord of the rings – Return of the king"

Figure: Bad Example – The first letter of the first and last words should always be capitalized

"The Lord of the Rings – Return of the King"

Figure: Good Example – Only conjunctions and prepositions (both having similar rules) should not be capitalized e.g. at, on, but, and, with etc.​​

​It's best to only do this on main titles (which are important), and leave subtitles in normal sentence form. Basically it saves hassles... English is a confusing language and there are too many variations that cause too many arguments.​

Good Example - the main title has capitalization and the sub-titles don't
