Hi, i've renamed this back. 'Is' actually should be capitalised — it is a verb, and in the majority of title-case standards, all verbs are capitalised. The notion that it should not be capitalised is probably derived from the mistaken belief that title case only capitalises long words (of which 'is' is obv not one).

To back up this assertion i present the following:

Most capitalize all words except for closed-class words, or articles, prepositions and conjunctions. (Wikipedia)
Capitalize all nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and subordinate conjunctions ("as", "because", "although"). (Chicago MOS)

Also these examples of titles that i found on Amazon/Wikipedia:

(Title case is an ugly pointless convention that i absolutely can't stand, so i'd be pleased to be rid of it entirely. But i think that's pushing it even for me — people simply expect it. :/ So i try to be accurate with it)  ♥ kine @ 00:41, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
