Different languages have different conventions for document titles:
some require to upper-case all letters, some - to capitalize all words,
others - to capitalize only the first word ("EMACS TUTORIAL",
"Emacs Tutorial", "Emacs tutorial"), different conventions for
centering the title, etc.  This can't be done without the help of
translators of the Emacs tutorial.  But it makes no sense to bother
them now for such a small change.  What is more useful is to provide
complete internationalization of Emacs after the next release (there
is already an entry in etc/TODO) for Emacs 23 (Unicode-2) and to ask
translation teams to translate menus, messages as well as the
splash screen.
