Not sure if you're asking for some kind of formatting guidelines or would you rather have a free screenplay word processor?

Here's a nice fast information piece on formatting:

A Few Notes on Formatting

This same page has a pdf file on formatting that you can download:

Screenplay Format Sample (PDF)
Screenplay Format Sample (Text only version)

Here's a few links to the best FREE screenplay word processors:

Cinergy
celtx
ScriptBuddy

Hope that works...

Good luck!

Personally, I've used Celtx, but it's a bit more than what I needed.

Now I use OpenOffice.org and just set tabs where they need to be.

The software is free, robust and it reads/writes Microsoft Word files too.

Very nice. :)

I still can't figure out Celtx. I'm going to try Scriptbuddy next. Open Office works fine.

walk through the full tutorial in celtx...Once I took the tiem to do that, it came together for me...and I can collaborate with folks on other platforms which is why I, Personally, recommend it as free software.
