Yvonne quotes from *Gregg*:

"'Underscore (it means italics) titles of complete works that are published
as seperate items - for example, books, pamphlets, long poems, magazines,
and newspapers. Also underscore titles of movies, plays, musicals, operas,
television and radio series, long musical pieces, paintings and works of
sculpture.'"

Just a picky little detail here. The key words in the passage are "published
as separate items." Short pieces (poems, art songs, chapters, articles,
short stories and such) are set off in quotation marks.
