Will an editor take care capitalization and punctuation errors?


Should an author have a good grasp on capitalization and punctuation before submitting a piece to an editor? I have a student who has written two books. He is a wonderful creative writer, but his capitalization and punctuation usage are horrendous. It is tedious to get through his writing. He thinks an editor will just do it for him. I told him that more than likely the editor would throw it in the trash. Anyone with some experience in this area have an answer I could pass on to this talented kid?
