7.0 Is there a correct format for referencing material from the Web, Gopher, FTP, Usenet, e-mail, other Internet source? (misc.writing Writing FAQ)

Like everything that concerns computing and the
Internet, there is no one standard format for citations. A
thorough explanation, written by Janice R. Walker of the
University of South Florida's Department of English, is
available from:

MLA-Style Citations of Electronic Sources
http://www.cas.usf.edu/english/walker/mla.html

Examples for all Internet resources are given. The
following is her generic format:

(Janice R. Walker (jwalker@chuma.cas.usf.edu)
Article J. Walker 1995, Last modified: 6 Sep. 1996.)

The basic component of the reference citation I have
compiled is simple:

Author's Last Name, First Name. "Title of Work."
Title of Complete Work. [protocol and address] [path] (date
of message or visit).

To cite this FAQ's quote from J. Walker's article, the
citation is:

Walker, Janice R. "MLA-Style Citations of
Electronic Sources."

(13 January, 1997).
