This conflicts with the gdp style guide. Please see my previous message
to the list!

*insert Kevin doing much swearing here*  So I looked at an O'Reilly book
and they use capital letters.  I have NEVER seen a book say "This is a
title of a chapter" and I find it obnoxious.  But because it's a
"standard", I'll go along with it.

according to gdp-styleguide this would be:

This Is a Title of a Chapter.

and opening a O'Reilly book (Docbook. The Definite Guide) and look at a chapter title I see:

Getting Started with SGML/XML

and `with' is not an article.

We should be using mediaobjects rather than graphics! See the gnome2 style guide!

Yes I know.  I gotta update my .emacs file to reflect this.  It's a
matter of laziness.

but the styleguide should relect mediaobjects!
