Boldface, italics, or underlined.


When mentioning a work of art, literature, or theater, here are the guidelines:

The title of a book, film, play or television series is italicised , boldfaced , or as a last resort, underlined.

The title of a short story, TV episode, or comparably minor work (including the title of a painting; sometimes paintings, drawings or etchings are part of a larger work) are put in "quotation marks."

In any kind of title, all major words (including the first, last, and all nouns, verbs, pronouns and adjectives) are capitalized.

Avoid putting two colons in a title, like Star Wars: Episode One: The Phantom Menace. That was the least of that film's problems, but it was certainly among them.
