I can't find it either, but this issue is different.  I propose renaming "String Methods" to "String, bytes and bytearray methods" and 


Return a copy of the string with its first character capitalized and the rest lowercased.  [Discuss Unicode vs bytes details.]

BTW, the "For 8-bit strings, this method is locale-dependent." part is probably out of date because bytes.capitalize() seems to pass non-ASCII bytes through:

>>> bytes([ord('è')]).capitalize()[0] == ord('è')

and for unicode strings the operation is *not* locale dependent.
