    In Irish, however, initial digraphs like "tS" and "hO" and "gC" *are* a standard
    part of the orthography, and constitute the normal capitalization convention:
    words beginning thus are capitalized on the second letter, not the first.

    We want more school houses and less jails; more books and less arsenals;
    more learning and less vice; more constant work and less crime; more
    leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact, more of
    the opportunities to cultivate our better natures.  --Samuel Gompers
