Dear Reader

It would be great to have a CSS statement to capitalize not only every
word, but whole titles.
As - for example - you can test out here http://titlecapitalization.com

The main difference is, that for example "a" does not get capitalized in
the title "This Is a Great Title".

The complete rules for title capitalization are:

   1. Capitalize the first and the last word.
   2. Capitalize nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and
   subordinate conjunctions.
   3. Lowercase articles (a, an, the), coordinating conjunctions
   and prepositions
   4. Lowercase the "to" in an infinitive (I want to play guitar).

I could imagine naming it as follows:

text-transform: capitalize*-title*
