FS#9948 - Use sentence case in english.lang

This patch attempts to permanently fix the inconsistent mixture of “Title Case” and “Sentence case” in english.lang by applying “Sentence case” to the entire file.

I suggested we do this in a post to the rockbox-dev mailing list last year, but that just ended in a very split discussion with no conclusion.

I’m not sure if this patch wil result in anything different, but I made it for my own use, and thought I would post it, as there were a fair number of posters to that discussion that also prefered sentence case.

The old discussion:

EDIT: I forgot to say this patch also changes a couple of uses of “center” to “centre”…

Mine too, but Rockbox is not a democracy ;-)

Mine too.

My eyes still prefer title case.

Why is UK spelling wanted? Why was "center" (U.S.) switched to "centre" (U.K.)?

Jonas Häggqvist commented on 2009-02-28 09:57

Because Rockbox uses UK English.

I personally like the idea of sentence case better than inconsistancy. We should keep to one format as discussed in fs#10003 with espanol.lang and American VS. Spain spanish.
