Style notes for this reference type
- The author is the author/editor/compiler of the document within the web site.
- Use angle brackets to contain the web address to eliminate confusion with other punctuation.
- The title of the document is italicised. Minimal capitalisation is recommended. capitalise only the first word of the title and any proper nouns.
- There is no comma or full stop between the author and date of document creation/revision. Commas are used to separate all other elements. The reference entry finishes with a full-stop.
- A web address can be given directly in the text, enclosed in angle brackets. An entry in the reference list is not required in this case. (E.g. Details are available from the Modern Language Association's web site <http://www.mla.org/scholarly_pub>.)
