It depends on what kind of manuscript you are writing: scientific, short story, business proposal, etc. Look at Strunk & White for some guidelines.

Agents and publishers prefer 12-point type and double spaced. Justified is undesirable to the industry, agents and publishers prefer that a writer just write. Unless an agent requests a specific format, just write.

A manuscript for what? The best way to find out about formatting is to find a manuscript similar in topic to your manuscript and use the fonts and layout they used.
