Article capitalization

"sequences tend to be capitalized"

Well, they may tend to be capitalized, but should we have this stylistic exception? Any exceptions should be for a reason. --Vladimir Nesov 22:31, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

It's a general rule according to some widespread conventions, but not according to other widespread conventions. For example, titles in Mathematical Reviews (http://www.ams.org/mathscinet) are capitalized according to the rules for normal sentences (as near as I can tell). ---Tyrrell McAllister 23:56, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
