tabular material or tables
When working with tabular material, tables or charts, abbreviations are not only desirable but often necessary. In such
cases, days of the week may be abbreviated in a variety of ways with or without periods. Pick one style and be
consistent within one document:
S M T W T F S
Sa, Su, M, Tu, W, Th, F
Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat
Sun., Mon., Tues., Wed., Thurs., Fri., Sat.
Use figures exclusively to express fractions, converting to decimals if the amounts involve extensive use of fractions
that cannot be expressed as a single character.
TV may be used as an adjective.
Use this spelling unless the official name is Theatre.

titles of publications and other works
Do not underline or use quotation marks. Italicize the titles of publications and other works, including book, poem and
short story titles; television program and film titles; CD, DVD and song and musical composition titles; exhibition titles;
and titles of sculpture and other visual and performing art. (MadisonStyle)
