    When using a personal pronoun (her) to refer to a personification (Dawn or
    West Wind, for example)do you capitalize it?

    Only if it's the Queen of England!
    I don't think you use caps for pronouns. Unless I don't understand your
    question.

    Why would FrontPage have a problem with capitalizing pronouns???

    Does it also have a problem with misspelled words?

    In German, Sie (you) is always capitalized when speaking formally -
    generally when you aren't familiar with the person you're speaking to / of.

    OK guys that one slipped by you. The reference to FP was tongue in
    cheek since it is a FP newsgroup. C'mon!
