Capitalization

In general, we only capitalize things when we need to. Read on for some guidelines on how to decide what to capitalize in a document's title, headings, products, features, and other elements of the page.

Use sentence case in headings

Use sentence case for headings. This includes category headings and document titles. With sentence case, capitalize only the first letter of:

  • The first word
  • Proper nouns
  • Acronyms and abbreviations

We have some exceptions:

Products and features

Item

Example

We use title case for products.

New Relic Infrastructure

We don't capitalize features.

"Use transaction traces to..." not "Use Transaction Traces to..."

UI elements and UI page paths

Item

Example

We use sentence case and bold for UI elements, even if the UI element is in a different case in the UI.

"From the Transactions page, select Transaction traces and..."

We use sentence case and bold for each element in a path that references UI pages.

Go to one.newrelic.com > APM > Transactions > Transaction traces > (select a trace) > Another thing.

Watermarks

Item

Example

We use all caps for BETA or NR ONLY.

<div id="watermark">NR ONLY</div>

Otherwise use sentence case.

<div id="watermark">Legacy</div>

Include break (br /) for longer watermarks.

<div id="watermark">Limited <br /> release</div>
