    Here are the rules: Capitalize in Heading and Title: First and last word Nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives Subordinating conjunctions (for example: before, after, when...) Hyphenated compound words First word following a colon Do Not Capitalize: Articles (a, an, the) Coordinating conjunctions (and, but, or, nor, so) The word 'to' when it precedes a verb Prepositions with fewer than five letters.

    Good answer Rainbow, I will simply add that the rules Rainbow listed are IN ORDER. So if it says to capitalize something DO IT - even if it is one of the things normally on the "don't capitalize" list. What you will find though, is what Dave suggested - the 4 letter rule - is usually correct. Just remember the colon/semicolon rule if you ever use them.
