LaTeX class for MLA papers.
In the United States, secondary and undergraduate students are generally expected to adhere to the format prescribed by the Modern Language Association (MLA) for typewritten essays, research papers and writings. Sadly, the tool of choice is usually Microsoft Word, even amongst those fluent with TeX.
Though there are some templates and tools to aid in writing in the MLA format using LaTeX, none fully met the expectations of the author. So voilà, there now exists an
mla.cls proper: a simple, straightforward class for composing papers almost perfectly adherent to the MLA style guide.
Documentation and source are combined into a
.dtx file, as is typical for LaTeX packages. To read the documentation, run
mla.dtx through LaTeX:
$ pdflatex mla.dtx $ gv mla.dtx
(If you're getting this package from CTAN, a file called
mla.pdf should already be provided.)
For an example file, refer to
mla-example.bib, or to the appendix in the documentation.
mla.ins through LaTeX:
$ latex mla.ins
Once finished, move the output
mla.cls to your local
