I'll set this up in CSS with some text-transform : capitalize; to be  
sure this won't happen anymore.

Yeah, forgot this, I was a little bit tired (understand completely  
fucked up) when I did this).

Didn't notice this. OS and browser please ?

I just wanted to have all labels on the left, looks cleaner and it's  
easier to read IMHO. But this can be changed.

If this patch is accepted, I'll start to send some more to have all  
the pages look cleaner. Admin is the worst thing in Typo with content  
state management. But admin is what users see.
Thank you for your feedback.

Merry Xmas
