Yes, I see the reasoning now. Changed my "vote", go with A and The. And
remind me not to respond unless it's a factual issue that I happen to
specifically, personally, know about.  And to spend more free time proofing
my volunteer books rather than on this list, grin.

Cindy, leave "A" and "The" as the first words in the titles. 
It's "bad" librarian cataloging, but it's better to do it exactly 
as the title appears for a whole slew of reasons regarding how 
Word and other programs do searches, and how people search for 
titles in this list.
