I am happy to get the Dutch one above the 90% but they are not always
consistant with capitols. Example:

eng: "Car Adapter Mode" and eng: "Remove preset"

The first one has a capitol for each word but the second one only the
first. The wiki does not cover this, so what is the oficial policy?

I also noticed that special letters like and do not work correctly
(at least in Dutch). Is this a bug or does rockbox not support these?

Thank
