Use underlining, italics, or quotation marks for titles?

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

You only put the italics in the body of the review and not on the subject line. They are under the subject line.

One problem with dealing with titles is that different schools of writing and documentation handle them differently. Chicago, APA, and MLA writing styles differ on some key points when it comes to proper documentation. I've always been preferential to MLA, because I studied liberal arts in college. APA is a close second while I've avoided Chicago.

You have to click the full editor button that would take you to another blank page but with editting buttons on top and smilies at the right side.

If you wanna italicize some words, highlight them and click the small italic i icon on top.

I hope that helps.
