I was just wondering:Why is it that even if [I]isn't the beginning of a sentence, its capitalized? Why isn't You or My, He, She, ect? basically my question is: is there a reason behind this? thanks -MC

    To my knowledge there isn't a "reason". But think about it... People would miss an i, whereas, I stands right up and says, "Here I am." <G>

    Yes that does make sense. I guess not everything needs to have a reason behind it. Thanks Guru!
