No mozilla still has a bug, according to the way I undersatnd the spec. 
It correctly transforms an intital U+0193 'dz' to U+0192 'Dz', but it 
also transforms U+0191 'DZ' to U+0192 as well  Thus changing 'DZIMA IS 
DELICIOUS!' to 'DzIMA IS DELICIOUS!'. In this case first letter is not 
the same as first character.  The rule for capitalize should be if the 
first character of a word is not in uppercase, it should be transformed 
to titlecase.

By the way I couldn't find that bug and I'd rather not file a 
duplicate, since you've indicated that it is there somewhere. Could you 
give me the bug number, so I can make the appropriate comment on 
bugzilla as well?
