I think the article needs to be entitled "eurozone". There is a trick for doing this, but I have forgotten it. if you agree, I will find the mechanism and rename it. Martin Baldwin-Edwards 16:29, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

If I remember rightly, it can be done using the "move" tag at the top of the main page - but are you sure that it is necessary? I know that the convention is to spell it with a lower-case e - but I had assumed that that would not apply to its use as the opening word of a sentence, nor to the title of an article?

It's true that people need to be reminded of the lowercase convention, but two wrongs... Ro Thorpe 23:21, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi Nick! I've changed the first sentence to put the word 'eurozone' first, since this is the norm on CZ. If you look at the list of Approved articles, you will see that virtually all of them are written in this way. Johan A. Förberg 00:38, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, Johan. Nick Gardner 07:17, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
