Formatting titles

In general, use sentence-style casing (that is, only capitalize the first word of a title, like at the beginning of a sentence), as this makes content more readable and ensures better localizability.

Use bold font instead of italics for titles to enhance readability and accessibility.

There are some notable exceptions to sentence-casing. These include:

  • The titles of books (including e-books), white papers, and reports:

Unraveling HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript

Backup and Recovery Overview for Azure Customers

  • Games:

Some of the top games on Microsoft Store include Sea of Thieves 2023 Edition and Stardew Valley.

  • Events and webinars:

The Microsoft Envision AI Tour is for decision-makers and developers, with events curated for each audience.
