Pregunta sobre acentuación gramática

¿Es necesario incluir acentos cuando se escribe un titulo en mayúsculas? Ejemplo, SECRETARIA DE EDUCACION o SECRETARÍA DE EDUCACIÓN

Gracias

Según lo que he leido, deben llevar tilde las mayúsculas.

Del informe de la RAE denominado Ortografía de la Lengua Española:

4.10. Acentuación de letras mayúsculas.
Las mayúsculas llevan tilde si les corresponde según las reglas dadas. Ejemplos: África, PERÚ, Órgiva, BOGOTÁ. La Academia nunca ha establecido una norma en sentido contrario.

Rusty, I'm sorry, but when you write in capital letters ain't necessary put in the letters accents.

Example:

EL ARBOL TIENE HOJAS GRANDES

El Árbol tiene hojas grandes.

At least, I remember when you write in capital letter all the text ain't necessary set accents in the words.

Regards.

Sorry to disagree with you, but you aren't citing the established rules set by the governing authority (RAE). Many people may ignore the rules, but Iblanco wanted to know what the rules are.

I've heard the same thing from Spanish teachers and others. However, I have since learned what the rules are and chose to pass them on to lblanco.

Thank you both for the clarification, I have been asking several colleagues the same question and have received different answers. I wasn't aware of the RAE grammar rule.

Thanks again

I agree with Rusty.
Years ago (with typewriters) it was not easy to fullfill all the accents, and it was "allowed" not to write accents in capitals. It was not right but nobody will say anything.
A lot of years ago, with computers more in use, then was clearly said it will be no more allowed. So Rusty (and the RAE ) is right.
I have recently answer a post,asking about Árabe http://forums.tomisimo.org/showthread.php?t=1767
and it must be Árabe, unless your system only allows Arabe.

saludos

PD I have find a good post who explains that

Tienes razón Rusty, pero yo no suelo ponerlas, probablemente por vaguería. Lo mismo sucede a veces en titulares de periódicos o publicidad, pero es una cuestión de ¿para qué estan las normas? Para saltárselas.
De todas maneras no me hagas mucho caso, porque aunque vivo en España, desde los 18 años estoy inmersa en mi propio mundo anglófono. Mis alumnos se ríen porque no conozco a ninguno de los famosos del momento, pero sé quién son los cocineros de moda en Inglaterra y todo ese otro tipo de información super transcendente y profunda.
