You should see that in the navigation area of the page. "CamelCase" 
should render as "Camel Case".

Maybe it is only partly working / removed right now.

I suggest that you disable this option in userprefs and just put a blank 
where you want to see one.

The problem with that "feature" is that the output quality of the "add 
space magic" depends on the language - for english it is mostly ok, but 
for languages that liketostickwordstogether (like e.g. German), this 
feature mostly works not (or is even annoying).

So the easiest thing that generally works is to just remove that feature 
and not do any magic.
