Norwegian capitalisation usage
Should be capitalised
- People’s names.
- Geographical names (of countries, counties/states, cities etc.).
- Headings/titles: only the first word is capitalised unless a proper noun is featured.
- Column and row headings should start with a capital letter and usually have no punctuation marks at the end.
- If bullet points represent a list of sub-headings, etc. it is natural to capitalise the first letter in each bullet point.
Should NOT be capitalised
