Word Chapter 2 Creating a Research Paper
To Modify a Style Using the Styles Task Pane
Although the format within each entry in the bibliographical list meets the MLA style, the paragraph formatting
does not. Currently, entries are based on the Normal style, which does not have the correct line or paragraph spacing.
Thus, you will modify the style so that it is based on the No Spacing style (no blank space before or after a paragraph)
and change its line spacing to double. The following steps modify the Bibliography style.
