I thought the specification consistently used uppercase at the start of 
sentences (one of the advantages of writing about a case-insensitive 
language :-) ), but it seems it's actually about 50-50. I prefer the 
uppercase, so I'm going to leave this T and change the four or five 
occurrences of lowercase instead.
