what should be capitalized? The ceiling of the sistine chapel in rome contains a painting 133 foot long and 45 feet wide.

The names of specific buildings and cities are some of the items that are considered proper nouns and whose first letters need capitalizing. There are three words in this sentence that need capitalizing. Can you see them?

There is also a problem with foot/feet. Usually, you say that something is ten-feet long. But you can say I used a ten-foot pole. In this case FEET should be used in both places.
