      The bug

      Advancement descriptions use title-case for generic material names unnecessarily, since they are in the middle of a sentence. For things like mobs or structures, since they refer to unique, game-specific elements, it's more than ok to use capital letters — for example, "Enter a Bastion Remnant". But using capitalization on generic, unspecific materials is a bit unusual, since there's nothing special about them.

      Affected strings:

      • Find ElytraFixed
      • Form and mine a block of Obsidian Fixed
      • Construct and place a Beacon (inconsistent with "Bring a beacon to full power")
      • Obtain Crying Obsidian Intended
      • Use a Compass on a Lodestone
      • Ride a Strider with a Warped Fungus on a Stick Intended
      • Get a full suite of Netherite armor Intended
      • Change a Respawn Anchor to the maximum Intended
      • Obtain Ancient Debris Intended


      Archive (fixed in previous versions)

      Capitalization required (game-specific elements):

      • Obtain a wither skeleton's skull Fixed
      • Respawn the ender dragon Fixed
      • Weaken and then cure a zombie villager (capitalized in subtitles) Fixed

      Capitalization required (title-case):

      • Sniper duel Fixed
      • Sweet dreams Fixed

      Game element's names:

      • Follow an Ender Eye (should be Eye of Ender) Fixed
      • Enchant an item at an Enchanting Table (should be Enchantment Table) Renamed "Enchantment Table" to "Enchanting Table" in 17w47a
