==Bằng tiếng Việt==
 
 
 
''Xin bạn viết bài này bằng tiếng Việt.''
 
 
 
==In English==
 
 
 
These rules apply to album and track titles:
 
* Do not capitalize any word except for:
 
** the first letter of the text
 
** the first letter of a sentence after . ! ? / :
 
** the first letter of proper and geographical names (persons, cities, nations, etc.)
 
 
 
=== Punctuation ===
 
 
 
There is a ''space'' character after punctuation.
 
 
 
====Punctuation (no space before)====
 
 
 
Like English, Vietnamese does not use any space before punctuation, including but not limited to ? ! ; : . , ...
 
 
 
==== Punctuation (with space before) ====
 
 
 
In Vietnamese there is a ''no-break space'' ("'' ''" U+00A0) before the following punctuation:
 
* The ''exclamation mark'' ("''!''" U+0021)
 
* The ''colon'' ("'':''" U+003A)
 
* The ''semicolon'' ("'';''" U+003B)
 
* The ''question mark'' ("''?''" U+003F)
 
 
 
In Musicbrainz (as there are few chances to have word-warp problems), '''you can use the standard ''space'' character before ! : ; ? punctuation.'''
 
 
 
==Examples (no space)==
 
 
 
* Em còn nhớ hay em đã quên?
 
* Nhớ về Hà Nội
 
* Hà Nội café ơi!
 
* Liên khúc: Đêm cuối / Giận hờn
 
 
 
==Examples (with space)==
 
 
 
* Em còn nhớ hay em đã quên ?
 
* Nhớ về Hà Nội
 
* Hà Nội café ơi !
 
* Liên khúc : Đêm cuối / Giận hờn
