I beg to differ awpstrike. Underlined chracter names are definitely not the norm, nor is italicized stage direction. You might want to point your teacher to http://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom/scriptsmart/formats.shtml which links to some good stage examples. In any case you'll find that Theatres are not nearly as anal about format as Hollywood - pick a style that works for you and keep things consistent and neat, that's all. Also, the beauty of Scrivener is that the focus is on process and content rather than output format.
