I agree that that's not great, but as others in this thread have said,
it's really not possible to do better without very high levels of
domain knowledge, and even then manual tweaks are necessary (for
example, for acronyms that look like real words).  CSS's
auto-capitalization is pretty dumb; don't rely on it if you want
high-quality capitalization.
