    1. Set one inch margins at the top, bottom, and on both sides. Indent the first word of each paragraph one-half inch from the left margin. When using a word processing program, you may use the Tab key to indent for each paragraph. Indent set-off quotations one inch from the left margin. The right margin should remain normal.

    2.To set the margins, select File and Page Setup from the Menu Bar.

    Make sure the "Margins" tab is selected.

    Enter 1" for each of the margin settings.

    Click OK.

    3. Use a reasonably-sized font: either 10 characters per inch or a 12 point font. And choose a font that is easy to read rather one that is decorative: "Arial," "Lucida," "Modern," "Palermo" or "Times New Roman" are some good choices. Scripted fonts are hard to read even if they do make your paper "look nice"; it is the content of the paper that is most important, and making it easy for your readers to understand that content is always a good choice.

    4. The Heading and Title

    5.Insert + Page Numbers dialog

    6.12 point font.

    7.In typography, serifs are semi-structural details on the ends of some of the strokes that make up letters and symbols. A typeface that has serifs is called a serif typeface (or seriffed typeface). (Basically they are the little flicks at the end of the letters)

    For this question write a sentence in Font: Times New Roman.

    8. Noun: A style of type without serifs.

    For this question write a sentence in Font: Arial.

    9. Also 12 point font.

    10. Bold-type or italicize the titles enclosed into the quotation remarks given;

    Bold-type or italicize the parts that you want to emphasize.

    hanging indent: Indentation of a paragraph in which all lines except the first are indented

    This website should tell you everything about the format of Works Cited to hanging indent http://dukeofdefinition.com/Speech_WorksCited_Pack...

    When creating your Works Cited Page, remember to:

    Alphabetize each entry by first letter

    Use italics for all titles of books, magazines, films, etc.

    You do NOT need to include the URL on internet sources unless specifically required.

    I've never known anyone to use MLA Formatting in a professional business - you should tell your teachers they are old and outdated - time to modernize
