Title case

Is it possible to instruct BibWord to print journal names or book titles in title case? It seems that only lower or upper case can be specified.

There is no such formatting switch available at the moment and I don't plan to add one. Title casing is extremely difficult to implement as the decision on which words to capitalize and which not is depending on the language of the sentence. (The implementation currently used by Word is not always correct either.)

As the output is simple HTML with CSS, you could try out the text-transform CSS property, but I'm not certain Word can process that one correctly:

{ <span style="text-transform: capitalize;">%BookTitle%</span>}

Note that you might to use &lt; and &gt; to represent < and > in the above example.
