Re: style guideline for treatment of referenced titles?
a book title, magazine title, or newspaper is underlined OR placedFor published works,
in all upper caps<<
Underline and upper caps? That's rather archaic, isn't it? It's my understanding that underlining a published book title, magazine title, or newspaper was originally an editor's mark for the printer (the person, not the peripheral) to use italicized fonts in the days prior to desktop publishing? (There's no italics key on the Smith-Corona, unless you purchased the interchangeable type balls that offered that choice).
Sounds like you need to find a different reference, Dana.
