In case you don't want to take my word, here'* what someone at Purdue says http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handou.../g_overvw.html (near bottom). They say that many prefer underlining,which is opposite of what I was taught. Here'* another one that says the same http://web.cn.edu/kwheeler/documents...tles_chart.pdf

In all fairness, Carnegie Mellon doesn't agree with me.

****EDIT**** Apparently Carnegie Mellon has it'* own set of rules, they pretty much don't put anything into italics or underline it. They put everything into quotes.

Yes, any time you use the title, you need to do whatever it is you choose to do.

this is just another reason I hate liberal arts.

labeled and in Italics is what it is going to be. Worst case I get a red mark.

I guess it all depends on what style guide you are using to prepare your paper. MLA, APA, etc.

I concur 100% Too many English snobs out there developing standards to permit that! Can you believe that people actually sit down and think about these things? I'd rather solve real problems!

Yes, I can beilve over-educated idiots with too much time to spare sit down and think about this crap. We should fire all of them, and send them to some other country to solve global hunger or something like that.

I bought this english editing book for my writing honors class. Comes in very handy. I highly suggest it if you're going to be in a lot of writing, or higher placement english classes.
