Should syndrome be capitalized in Aspberger Syndrome. I see it both caps. and lower case all over the web. I say it should be. What do you think?

If you suffer from the syndrome of Asperger then "syndrome" is not to be capitalised.

But the syndrome is "Asperger's Syndrome", that is capitalised.

And in UK English I can spell capitalised and capitalized (originally a no-no but since about 2000 those that make these rules have placed a blanket acceptance that all -ised can be -ized also - -ized always usd to show the origin to be US English). But as a true Brit I still prefer -ised.
