Trivial grammar issue

I use the term "trivial" 'cuz so many helpful a2k'ers dismiss so many of my postings for that reason. So if you're one of 'em I invite you to skip this OP

In Sunday fliers of or Friendly Local Victorville Daily Press some advertisers in each title capitalize every word. Now those like me who scan 'em hoping to learn a new word now and agin are frustrated 'cause we don't know which ones are trade terms

Capitalizing everything is very commonplace all over

Now, "Super" and Clinical Strength" clearly are common but should I memorize the others

It is common to capitalise every word of a title or heading, which is what I see on that page you linked to.

Cen that's true, it's very common. In the Sunday fliers, for instance, about half the advertisers use caps for all words in each title. I had only hoped to find others like Your Average Fussbudget (me) who might look up a new word

So you're saying this is a trivial pursuit?

By all means, memorize to your heart's content and do so until you are mesmerized.

Perhaps you need to send a letter to the editor of the local rag...or have you been requested to cease and desist?
