"home" isn't capitalized, but everything else is?

I just noticed that at the top of the permies forum, there's:

home | Forums | Search | Pie | Recent | Topics | Flagged Topics | Hot Topics | Best Topics | Zero Replies | Leaderboard | My Bookmarks and Watches | My Posts | World Domination! | My Profile | My Purple Mooseages | Logout

Everything is capitalized except "home." It's not really important, I just noticed it and thought it odd. I know a lot of things aren't capitalized that usually would be, such as forum names or titles like "steward" or "paul wheton"or "permies." But then, other things like the "Reply" and "Watch Topic" buttons are capitalized. I always figured there was some philosophy behind why things weren't capitalized, and so I thought you might want to know that the links at the top aren't all capitalized or all not-capitalized.

Once again, I'm not complaining! I just noticed and didn't know if you knew, in case it was something you cared about .

I suspect that the philosophy is that Paul hates capital letters while other people that help out use them by default.  

But yeah, it does look a little odd now that you mention it.
