[Forum] RE: Setting a naked subtitle
It's really pretty simple. According to CMOS 14.94 "Book titles and subtitles are italicized." It shouldn't matter if the subtitle stands alone or in context with the main title, it would still be italicized. http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/16/ch14/ch14_sec094.html

[Forum] RE: Titles within Italicized Text
The gossip column text is italicized to make it stand out from the rest of the prose in the book. I do the same with letters in a book. I will unitalicized the play title. Thank you for your help.

[Forum] Game Names
Should computer games such as [i]World of Warcraft[/i] be italicized in a text in accordance with the rule on composition/book titles (Chicago 8.189)? If so, should board game titles such as [i]Monopoly[/i] and [i]Cluedo[/i] also be italicized? Many thanks, Deirdre

[Forum] Re: Possesstive of italicized name
Wikipedia's style guide indicates that the apostrophe-[i]s[/i] should not be italicized, which makes sense to me, as it is not part of the vessel's name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Ships/Guidelines You could also sidestep the issue by recasting the sentence (e.g., "the

[Forum] RE: Names of ships
I agree with RGJaxon that CMoS says to italicize ship names. I've read a lot of military science fiction where battles are reported (sometimes seemingly endlessly). The ship names are always italicized, regardless of frequency. I am encountering a different issue regarding the names of ships. Cur

[Forum] Should the name of a musical instrument in a foreign language be italicized?
Should the names of musical instruments be italicized if they are in a language other than English?

[Forum] RE: italics
Do they, though? I saw it italicized in the entry and almost went with it, but then I thought, [i]Are they just italicizing the word I looked up?[/i] I looked up the common word "day" to compare, and "day" was italicized throughout the entry too, so I didn't find M-W conclusive on this, thus how

[Forum] RE: Fictional newspaper
I beg to differ. The official name is [i]The New York Times[/i], so "The" would be italicized and capitalized. Check out a copy--"The" is part of the name. Same goes for [i]The Wall Street Journal[/i]. So if "The" is part of the fictional name, it would be italicized and capitalized. But who woul
