Well actually when you put it that way, 'Titles of Things' is the only 
one that's right when used as a base, and then if you WANT it lowercase 
or uppercasing just the first, that's easier to do automatically.

But I *can't* get 'titles of things' ==> 'Titles of Things' without 
writing a smart capitalization parser.
