MLA Style in Microsoft Word

Following MLA style in Microsoft Word can be challenging, especially in Word 2010. Many of the features new to that version interfere and contradict MLA style.
This style guide explains the major considerations, and how to format for them in Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010. Your professor may have more specific requirements, so remember to double check with special style requirements.

  • Formatting font style and size
  • Line and paragraph spacing
  • Formatting document margins
  • End-notes
  • Headers and page numbering
  • Indenting in Word
