    Hello there, I guess this is the wrong forums as you're not really showing us any code which you believe is broken. However I shall try to give you a little tip on how to solve this one.

    - Split the string on white space, this should give you an array of all the words in the sentence.
    - Loop through all the words and lower case them and make the first character upper case and print them out.

    Now that should get you started, its fairly easy and if you give it a shot and you still have problems, come back here and post some code and someone will point in the right direction again.

    If you dont know how to split the string or do loops, have a look at The Really Big Index
