Illustrations, tables, charts, etc. should have captions or legends.

The "keep out trouble" rule is to use Microsoft Word's In-sert…Caption function.

The "traditional" rule is in the Chicago Manual of Style sec-tion about this (11.24-43).

Bulleted Lists[edit]

Use a tab between the bullet and the first word. A space will vary in width, if your list has justified text.
