# Is there a Name for this Style of Capitalisation?

It seems quite common on the web to capitalise certain words in a heading, or navigation bar, but not others.

Here are some examples:

To me it seems any "important" words are capitalised, and words such as and, of, to, from are not. Is that the case? If so, is there a name or term for this behaviour?

This is generally only seen in titles of web pages, or headings perhaps, and not something I've seen commonly in the body of a piece of text.

Note that title case is a family of methods; the capitalisation of the "important" words is one member, capitalising all words is another. [I know I am forever editing cddb records from the mixed title case to pure.] –  Orbling Apr 14 '11 at 11:52
When only "important" words are being capitalized, the writer is employing what I call "honorific caps." Not good. –  The Raven Apr 14 '11 at 13:55

For what it's worth, I was taught to also capitalize the first and the last words in a title in when using title case, even when they would otherwise not be covered by the rule (e.g., The Curious Case of the Missing Velociraptor instead of the Curious Case of the Missing Velociraptor). –  BMDan Apr 15 '11 at 0:31
