  4. 4. The alphanumeric outline is the most common. Using a combination of Roman numerals, letters, and numbers, the writer is able to organize essay elements. http://www.flickr.com/photos/71753457@N00/204145200/in/photolist-j3ifQ-8BKdn-7dhBCF-7VJdYD-2NRJUH-5TVUiD-GcabP-8suYx-cNqRe-3q6aWv-jrBsR-2MBc3Q-6qjo7F-5U5ko1-FjzxP-5Cr4FqUhs-d5ogB-ivjvM-9av1i-4QhcTu-4BV4c7-3oG9UN-4LZgbt-2Pekhf-ApRhh-sJzC-o32n-eGVDo-4Gfg9j-5Pi84h-bzUdj-d419W-9b4TnM-8gTHXG-4ci6u-5CTtmt-3pte4P-37ZYg-cUCUsU-Yimu-9nUQTj6WCSw9-3J1WT-9A8uFb-49sN6T-7UjJXa-4fbZbn-kKBmo-B1YCX-aUZGTr
