RE: First character in a word as capital-letter.
I too have become a great believer in CSS. However, I wouldn't go all the way to saying "never use inline styles". There are some things you can achieve with inline styles that can't be easily reproduced with a standalone CSS stylesheet, for example computing the layout dimensions based on the actual data encountered.
