The principle is simple, look for characters that are preceeded by white
space, but any program that does a reasonable job of converting to mixed
case needs to handle somewhere between hundreds and thousands of exceptions.

Besides the obvious things like prepositions and articles, think about
things that are hyphenated and contain slashes.  Don't forget common
acronyms.  Then there are names with prefixes like "McTell" or "D'Artagnan."

Good luck--any program like this is a work in progress.  The best thing
about it is you don't have to deal with numbers. <g>

Subject: Convert uppercase to mixed case

Does anyone have a generic routine (RPG) for converting uppercase to mixed
case?  I'm looking to convert all our customer and vendor names and
addresses from upper to mixed.
