Defining an acronym in a sentence?

Post by happyfatboy » Thu Oct 18, 2018 8:10 pm

It is acceptable to capitalize the first letter of every word when defining an acronym in a sentence?

For example:

Definition:

RICE for the instructions for treating a sprain
(Rest the injured area, Ice the sprain, Compress with a wrap or bandage, Elevate the injured area)


In a sentence:

You can use the "RICE" method to treat your sprain, which states that you should Rest the injured area, Ice the sprain, Compress with a wrap or bandage, and Elevate the injured area.
