on a powerpoint, do you italicize or underline the title and subtitle of the book in question of the biography/ presentation?
for a tv show, do you underline, italicize, or put it in quotes?

  • grammar -

    books, magazines, newspapers, and movies are either underlined or italicized, while other titles (such as that of a tv show) are put in quotes. the former (books, magazines, newspapers, and movies) is generally italicized when written on the computer, but underlined when written by hand.

  • grammar -

    It doesn't matter what program you're using -- PowerPoint, Word, Publisher, etc. What matters is the guidelines you've been told to follow.

    MLA: (Broken Link Removed)
    Books - italicize or underline, just be consistent
    Television shows - in quotation marks

    APA:
    (Broken Link Removed)
    Same
