Paragraphs start indented (.5”)

Use “double inverted (“smart”) quotes”

Place punctuation inside quotation marks: “Punctuation inside quotation marks.”

Numbers: write out numbers one through nine; use numerals for 10 and higher (exception: if a sentence starts with a number, write it out—“Twenty-five years ago…”
