It turns out that for .NET 2.0 there were changes in localized names for months and week days in spanish cultures (es-CO, for example). They used to be capitalized ("Febrero") and now they are not ("febrero").

I logged this to see what the answer was, and, it turns out (not unexpectedly) it was by design. I really would like to know just what kind of usage scenarios they had in mind, as I personally feel the change is not very useful, and actually makes some scenarios harder; but I might be convinced otherwise if it makes other scenarios easier!
