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 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:
- If the heading is a code term, such as a variable or function, then capitalize it exactly as it's used in the code; for example:
- If the heading includes a colon, follow the Microsoft Style Guide for titles and headings, and capitalize the first word that appears after the colon; for example: APM Error profiles: Troubleshoot trends.
We use title case for products.
New Relic Infrastructure
We don't capitalize features.
"Use transaction traces to..." not "Use Transaction Traces to..."
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.
We use all caps for BETA or NR ONLY.
Otherwise use sentence case.
Include break (
