    Purdue OWL (an excellent online souce, IMO) says short story titles go in quotation marks, the books containing them in Italic type.

    You can do either as long as you are consistent.

    Which makes the title stand out? 

    Personally, I prefer italics, but I'll often use quote marks instead. Oh, and it doesn't matter how long the short story is -- one page or twenty.
