Description

Titles in manual pages are expected to be upper case. Running mandoc -Tlint -Wstyle will pick up on this amongst other things, and we only have the following examples

mandoc: man1/zonestat.1:15:5: STYLE: lower case character in document title: Dt zonestat
mandoc: man1m/zonestatd.1m:15:5: STYLE: lower case character in document title: Dt zonestatd
mandoc: man3head/timespec.3head:15:5: STYLE: lower case character in document title: Dt timespec
mandoc: man3lib/libm.3lib:7:5: STYLE: lower case character in document title: TH libm
mandoc: man3lib/libmvec.3lib:7:5: STYLE: lower case character in document title: TH libmvec

Testing:

Viewed pages using the man utility, checked specifically that the
title was indeed shown in upper case, and verified that
'mandoc -Tlint -Wstyle' returned no warnings or errors.
