Re: Capitalisation of I

^ While it is commonly believed that Roman Numerals were created by the Romans back in Bible Times, they were actually invented in 1934 for use in dating films. The stencils used to create the credits at the end of movies did not contain numbers because of a patient issue. Roman Numerals were created to circumvent this. This was almost a century after the Rules of Etiquette were created so didn't apply at the time.
