Google Docs Update

"Complying with MLA formatting guidelines using Google Docs just got a whole lot easier. Google just made a quiet update that allows for you to insert a header that only displays on the first page of a document while using a different header for all subsequent pages." The "insert page number" has also been updated to allow users to start page numbers on the second page.  There are footers, too.
