In the example below, headings like "the BLOG" have lower case words and upper case words, but it appears that WH Pro upper-cases everything. How can I make these upper and lower case?

to match the demo; just put `` tags around the words you want lower case.

That's pretty easy, but brings up two related questions. First (which may reflect my total newbieness with Wordpress) is that when you hover over a title with
 em
tags, the help text reflects that, as the picture below shows. How do we get rid of that problem?

Second, is there any way to increase the vertical spacing between wrapped words in the menu, as shown below as well. When longer page titles wrap, they're a little too tight.

Thanks again,

Hmm. good point. This is simply because there is a 'title' on the link, that is the same as its text. The only 'easy' way to fix this is to remove the titles on the links...

So how would you go about doing that from your interface? Or is it something where there needs to be a hack of your CSS or JavaScript? By the way, it shows up the same way on your demo and looks crappy there, too. There is no helper text on whitehouse.gov, so maybe the easiest thing to do is just remove it from your theme. Could you do that and update in the next day or so, or tell me how to hack it so it'll go away? Thanks!

OK, figured it out. Here's what I found: http://wordpress.org...tle-attributes/ This plug-in removes the hover element that's created when an A HREF has a TITLE= attribute. This is particularly important for links where the title itself is stylized, like with: Seems to work just fine. No special settings. Install, enable, and the hovers go away. Pretty slick.

good solution. Glad you found such an elegant solution. I was going to say that most would prefer the title attributes as the word is that it may help with SEO (but not much)
