When should you use "Title Case"?

Are there any guidelines for when you should capitalize titles/headings or not? Should you always do this in English? I am referring to **A Capitalized Heading** vs **A capitalized heading**

Sharon P.

You should capitalize the first word and last word of any heading, regardless of the part of speech. Words that are not capitalized are conjunctions (and, or, but, nor, yet, so, for), articles (a, an, the), or prepositions (in, to, of, at, by, up, for, off, on). All other words are capitalized.
