Description

Currently, the "Hello world!" headline on the default post is in sentence case rather than title case, which would be "Hello World!"

Title case and sentence case are both grammatically correct, you just need to pick a standard and stick to it. But let's face it, headlines usually use title case. I propose that we change the default post title to use title case instead of sentence case.

Whether one or both is correct would depend on your style guide. Since blogging is often synonymous with journalism, we should follow the convention of leaving "world" without an uppercase letter.

Another reason to follow this convention is that the title is a complete sentence with a closing punctuation mark.

If anything, I'd argue the text should be "Hello, world!"
