This paper discusses two chapters of the rules of Hungarian orthography: those on upper vs. lower case initials and on proper nouns, respectively. It presents five years of work of a committee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences devoted to the regulation of spelling, the finished proposal, the essence of proposed changes, and compares the latter with earlier regulations. It covers contributions and suggestions coming from external experts, too. Briefly, it can be said that the regulation of writing proper nouns is planned to be modified in very minor ways only, hence tradition and permanence continue to be the guiding principles there. Contributors have suggested that the revised handbook of orthography should be simple in its formulation and easy to comprehend, the interests of general education should be taken into account more than before, and methodological considerations should also be observed.
