The French convention for capitalising ...

The French convention for capitalising this title would be just "C'est l'amour" or "C'est l'Amour". Capitalising every word as "C'Est L'Amour" would be considered incorrect in French but is how the RSCDS printed it in Book 34 so that is what is used here.
