Is 'Halting Problem' always with a capital P? Or can one write 'halting problem'? I ask because if the former the article needs to be moved accordingly. Ro Thorpe 14:14, 9 March 2008 (CDT)

Oops, you're right, yes it is always with a capital 'P'. How can I easily move an article (or do I just recreate it ?)

But the Wikipedia article has 'halting problem' throughout. Ro Thorpe 14:07, 11 March 2008 (CDT)
More reliable sources use capitals, e.g., http://mathworld.wolfram.com/HaltingProblem.html Christopher J. Reiss 15:25, 12 March 2008 (CDT)
Not in the text: 'the halting problem is solvable for machines...' Ro Thorpe 16:11, 12 March 2008 (CDT)
