    I like this a lot! Writing my own thesis in LaTeX right now and this makes the bibliography look great. I do have one problem though, my appendix (which is after the bibliography) is now also in a two-column format. Any ideas?

    Nice, that is quite correct. But not exactly for Unix, where letter case matters. \begin{SingleSpace} and \end{SingleSpace} would be better and work for both Unix and Windows.

    @doug, Use \begin{onecolumn} and \end{onecolumn} where you define the appendix as a chapter. Something like this.

    \chapter{Appendix title}

    Hope it helps

Did I get this wrong? Let me know!
