Many have asked if this material is still relevant. If you are seeking traditional publication (in which you pitch your story to a publisher that will pay you for it), the standards haven't changed. But you don't have to go this in-depth if you don't want to. At the very least, if you format your manuscript with Times New Roman, 12-point font, double spaced without any extra spacing between paragraphs, use one-inch margins on all four sides, simply page numbers, the same number of asterisks centered between your scene breaks, and no fancy fonts for titles, you'll be good to go.
