Here is an OmniMark program that will output a list of all the capitalized
words in a document. Naturally it can't tell nouns from other parts of

find (uc [letter or "-"]+) => capitalized-word
output capitalized-word
output "%n"
find any

This program can be run with OmniMark LE which is free from
