I haven't even read this yet.
If you haven't done so, read Watchmen. You can get in a LOT of visual information in an 9-panel grid--as long as both the writer and the artist know what they're doing.

It depends on how/where it happens.

Mine only happened in the dialogue headings, not throughout the script. Also, I know it was a translation error because I wrote the script in Final Draft and then converted it to a format that could be read by another word processing program.

Here, everything is capitalized except for that one spot, meaning he typed everything and forgot to put on the caps lock in that instance. It's pretty easy to spot once you've seen different kinds of errors a few times. I've noticed it in a few scripts here myself, and have given the writers the benefit of the doubt when it happens. That particular type of error doesn't happen often, though.
