Anonymous asked:

Is it okay to use any special formatting (bold, italics, underline, strikethrough) in a school paper?

I answered:

If you’re a student, you are most likely required to follow the guidelines set by the Modern Language Association of America. (In other words, you are writing in MLA style.)

To ensure that you use the correct formatting, watch the following videos:

1. Purdue OWL: MLA Formatting – The Basics

2. MLA Style Using Microsoft Word

If you don’t want to watch videos (especially one that is longer than 20 minutes), then peruse through the Purdue OWL’s excellent instructions and tips.

Lastly, if your teacher does not endorse MLA style, ask him or her for guidelines. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
