I file briefs with appellate courts. Each brief has a section called a "Table of Contents" and one called a "Table of Authorities," where the "C" and the "A" are capitalized because those phrases are the titles of those sections.
What if I want to refer to those sections in the text of the brief or in the text of a motion accompanying the brief? Should I capitalize as it is capitalized in the titles of those sections, or treat the phrases as common nouns? E.g.,
"I revised the table of contents in the brief."
