caps for wind
« on: May 02, 2012, 03:27:35 am »
wind direction is often given using both upper case and lower case letters, such as E by N.  Is it important/mandatory to use the upper case letters?

It is preferred to write what they write.  In the beginning, the team wanted the directional points capitalized; that's why the double tab to convert them.  But that does not include the 'by' or whatever punctuation they are using.  Either way, it isn't lethal to the records. :)
