Article title

Should be at Transmission Control Protocol. J. Noel Chiappa 12:22, 13 May 2008 (CDT)

I happen to agree, but wasn't there an argument, with Autonomous system, that the title should be initial cap only, with Autonomous System only in text? Howard C. Berkowitz 12:27, 13 May 2008 (CDT)
Uh, no, not if you were referring to this:
"If you would write Autonomous System in the middle of a sentence"
which was simply a test as to whether the correct capitalization was "Autonomous System" or "Autonomous system".
As for title/text, all articles should be consistent, and use the same in text as in the title, with the exception that a title which is in some sense normally 'lower case' (like "Plant" or "Foreign policy") would be lower case in text, e.g. "Chlorophyll is an energy conversion molecule in all plants" or "The foreign policy of Britain in the 1900s".
