[Alain] For some languages it might not matter much but matter in
exceptional cases. In French, for example, « le Français » and « le
français » mean different things (the first one means « the Frenchman »,
the second means « the French language », but this is much more exceptional
a difference than in German (although it also obeys to a strict rule in
French, it is not randomly occuring).

    These were my two cents... if it may be useful info.
