"Normal documents" at the universities are
written in English to a large extent, a trend
that will probably grow to include more
academic disciplines, and also more countries.

Biblatex is one computer system that certainly
involves titles. Here is one good example for
the OP to try his function on:

  author     = {John Jackson Miller and Dustin Weaver},
  ISBN       = {1-59307-761-0},
  publisher  = {DC},
  title      = {Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2},
  year       = 2007

But you are not saying only "professional"
people should write their titles correctly?

Besides there are many professional people who
stink at what they do, and OTOH many people who
aren't professional who are even worse ;)
