The title is not underlined, and neither is anything else in the paper. Bold type occurs, but only for headings and subheadings, not for emphasis within the main text.

Words like »chapter« or »section« do not appear before the chapter or section numbers.
Only the pages on which a section starts are given.
The table of contents presents the headings (all of them) in exactly the wording in which they appear in the body of the paper.
The word »page« need not appear. If it appears, it does so above the column of page numbers only, not before every number in that column.
1 THE STATUS OF THIS D OCUMENT
The most important thing about a term paper is its content: the arguments and thoughts it presents. But the form is not unimportant either. This document exemplifies and points out some features of a respectable layout and typography for a term paper. The operation is limited. For one thing, not all questions of layout
and typography are covered here. Secondly, there are also important formal questions – not covered here either – that fall outside those fields altogether: questions of grammar, orthography, language style, the correct identification of quotations and sources, … Many formal points are treated in The Chicago Manual of Style, The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, and other publications of a similar kind. Thirdly, what we have here is an example of a way to do things. The example has some features to which there are acceptable alternatives. Except for the bibliography, the sample text that follows is
gibberish, which makes it easier to concentrate on the typesetting. All explanations appear in green type in grey boxes.
