Just report it. They'll fix it quick.

Marcus est Americanus and Marcus Americanus est are both correct.

I am surprised to see "Americanus" capitalized. French and Spanish don't do that, so it seems odd that their parent tongue does. Can anyone knowledgeable comment on this?

That was my question too. I had automatically capitalized it, then re-did it lower case for the report. I'm not sure they even had lower case until the 2nd century A.D... Can anyone comment?
