I think this could be confusing to the reader unless we say ''how'' the article title is incorrect. Can we not use the same format as for the usual incorrect title template, i.e. state what the correct title is? Or state that "the title of this article is incorrectly capitalized"? --[[User:Mozcerize|Mozcerize]] 17:08, 2 February 2006 (UTC) I think this could be confusing to the reader unless we say ''how'' the article title is incorrect.
