AddressAccelerator returns roads with the incorrect letter case and city names are incorrectly capitalized

This article details why AddressAccelerator returns roads (e.g. Macewin, Macintosh) with the incorrect letter case (i.e. MacEwin, MacIntosh) and city names are incorrectly capitalized when validating addresses.
After The Raiser's Edge receives the new validated address information it automatically updates the capitalization after certain groupings of letters like "Mac" or "Mc."  

The below gives some options for resolving this issue, but if you would like to see The Raiser's Edge change this in the future please post in the The Raiser's Edge community.
