Speaking as a native Brit, I much prefer menu items and setting names in
title case. Take the main menu in sentence case as an example:
My eyes are drawn straight away to the words "playback" and "radio": these
look out of place here (sloppy, even) without capitalisation. I don't think
Rockbox should differ from the vast majority of English software (UK, US or
otherwise) in this respect.
I think it goes without saying that dialogs should be using sentence case.
Just my 2p sterling...
