The Chicago Manual of Style.

If you have a screenplay that needs professional attention, I highly recommend John Madormo. He offers screenplay proofreading, copy editing, and script formatting. He is a successful novelist, award-winning screenplay author, and longtime college professor. You can reach him at professorwordsmith.com.
