    That's good to know! In that case you are very welcome in the forum.
    But in English the personal pronoun I is capitalised - Javascript is case-sensitive and so am I.

    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    So also are the start of sentences.

    Bearing in my that all computer programming calls for very great accuracy, I am always astonished at the poor standard of literacy displayed by many posters in this forum. Or is simply carelessness and a "can't be bothered" attitude? Neither bodes well for future employment prospects.

    *Or is it

    I too am generally careful about grammar and even typography – you may have noticed that, for example, I am using the correct dash ('–') rather than a normal hyphen ('-'), and I have had discussions with typography experts about how to space abbreviations like 'ABC' in my thesis that went on for several pages. Or whether or not to indent the footnote on the bottom of the page by a millimeter more or less.

    But not everyone is a native English speaker (I'm not one) and not every mistake is carelessness. Typos happen. To everyone.

    After all I did for my thesis, after I got the printed copies and turned it in, I noticed two very stupid spelling mistakes right on the back cover – the one thing that I forgot to double-check and had written months earlier. Oh well.

    You surprise me. Not many non-native speakers are as fluent as you are.
    All languages have capitalisation and punctuation rules. A noun in German, for example, must be capitalised. Whether you are a native German speaker or not. In English adjectives of nationality are capitalised but not in German. E.g. German wine/deutscher Wein. I is capitalised in English, Sie in German. In both (most??) languages the first letter of a sentence is always capitalised.

    Yes, that is so. But multiple "typos" in a couple of sentences start to morph into illiteracy, or at best a very careless approach.
