I asked awhile ago for it but haven't seen it added yet
I wish Jaikoz wouldn't capitalize connector words:

and
of
at
is
the (provided it doesn't start the token)

...

etc, etc.

Guess I wasn't logged in for the post so I can't edit it. I also wanted to suggest that if you do implement this, then have Jaikoz not only not capitalize those words, but also force them to lower case (so that it catches any of them already in uppercase).

Sorry for so many posts. I figured out an easy fix you can do to implement this. Allow the word replacer to work on a case sensitive basis. That way I could have it replace "And" with "and". Currently it can't do this.

To improve on the "... etc, etc." of the first post, I think this list includes all of the things that are not capitalized in titles in the English Language:

all prepositions
conjugated forms of the verb "to be"
the word "be" itself
the
a
an
and
if a word is hyphenated, the word(s) following the hyphen(s), like Vice-president

(Except, the first letter of the first word is always capitalized, like Of Mice and Men, and the first letters of the first words following spaced hyphens and colons are always capitalized, like Boston: And Their Greatest Hits [made up])
