Hi Larry,

David's answered, but I'd also point out that mh-draft(5) is a file
rather than a program.  Another thing is if it's a case-sensitive
concept, e.g. the program name inc, then it doesn't suffer normal
capitalisation rules and become Inc, e.g. at the start of a sentence.
I think I've altered most of those already.

Cheers, Ralph.
