    Need to do a paper for college and it needs to be in MLA format, any way to get it to be in that format? Thanks

    In MS Word you simply right align in the Header, type your last name and insert in the page number. I imagine there is a similar option in Pages. Look to the right of this post.

    Would it be easier for me to download the 30 day trial of MS 2008 or do it in pages?

    Why would that be easier? All you're doing is changing the margins and occasionally the paragraph alignment.

    I just noticed the research paper template, if I change the margins around on it, it should be in MLA format correct? Since it has my name in the upper right and everything seems to be good.

    It may be correct, but in 5 mins you could create a new layout which is definitely right.

    If you hover your cursor over the top margin, you'll see a spot where you can type something in (which is the header).
