Should first names on i-130, i-485, i-864 be capitalized?

Asked about 2 years ago - Washington, DC

Form i-130 specifies "(Family name in CAPS)" on page 1. However, the instructions of i-864 specify "Print clearly or type your answers using CAPITAL letters." So, if my name is John Doe, would I consistently write:
DOE JOHN (which i-864 seems to ask for)
OR
DOE John (which i-130 seems to ask for)
?
Or, should I write DOE JOHN on the i-864 but DOE John on the i-130?
Is this the kind of thing that I really don't need to worry about?

Thank you very much!
