    I'm of the opinion that if a word starting a sentence is apostrophicised to denote a missing letter or letters at the start of the word, then the first letter after the apostrophe should not be capitalised.

    This is a personal thing and I've no idea of the official position.

    Nice pic, btw

    It does make sence. Likewise I am unaware of the official position, however I'll take your six on this one.

    Particularly clever of you to ascertain that.

    When I say 'clever', I mean 'tautological', obviousement.

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I must hie meself to the pub, wherein I shall wield me cue in the most masterly way.
