Also, it sometimes depends on one's professors as to which format is expected.)

APA includes "American" in its title, so I'm assuming its use is restricted to the US. And since those of you who aren't from the US are indicating a lack of familiarity with MLA, I'm guessing the same about it.

From this black aceldama of sorrow;
Where the dust of an earthy today
Is the earth of a dusty tomorrow!
