Capital letters in titles do not comply with national spelling rules

Capital letters in titles do not comply with national spelling rules

I've recently come across a variety of titles in Danish where Every Word Is Capitalised No Matter What, which does not conform to the rules of using capitals in titles in Denmark (which are a lot like the english recommendations of not using capitals in non-essential words). Furthermore, it is recommended to only use a single capital letter on the first word in longer titles. The Danish artist "Katinka" has a track titled "Vi Er Ikke Konne Nok Til At Danse" on Spotify, which is just plain wrong and jarring to the eye – it should at least be "Vi er Ikke Konne Nok til at Danse", but in accordance with the recommendation of only capitalising the first letter in longer titles, it should be "Vi er ikke konne nok til at danse" to be completely right.

 

NB I had to remove the danish oe-ligature from the title above as it is apparently not allowed in this forum.
