    Right, the firstt hing that you need to do is open the Welcome thread and read the FAQs and the shortlisting clickables. These will give you loads of advice on producing a good application.
    Q1 Also an executive summary. The covering letter should be just a few sentences, acting as a sort of envelope.
    Q2 NO, NOT CAPITALS UNLESS THEY SPECIFICALLY ASK FOR IT, AS THAT IS HARDER TO READ. No, not capitals unless they speifically ask for it, as that is harder to read. See?
    Best of luck!
