style questions

Forgive the not-strictly-on-topic questions, but I wonder how other
writers feel about these style choices:

1) referencing chapters, figures, tables using lowercase instead of

For example:

see figure 1-5 in chapter 3, Using our Software

instead of:

see Figure 1-5 in Chapter 3, Using our Software

2) Using quotation marks to set off a referenced heading, instead
   of italics.

For example:

see "That other section I wrote" for more information

instead of:

   see _That other section I wrote_ for more infroamtion
   (where the _section name_ would be in italics)

I'm finding both of these hard on my eyes, and wonder what
is generally used.
