more info on refs

HI Peter

might be easier to see how the refs are done in a properly ref'd article (many of our older articles are not), at

have a look at how the coding is done, with ref coding, author if there is one, open square bracket, url, then a space, title of article or web page, publication or who owns website, date of article, then date accessed if web page.

let me know if any q's by clicking on link below and typing message on my talk page, or email claire.robinson[AT]

many thanks

Hi Peter

I've tidied up a bit and taken out reference to the Lexis Nexis url, as most cannot access Lexis. if there is another online source that would be good but I cdn't find one.

note that the coding for block quotes is not to use quote marks but start new para with a colon, thus

Your intro to block quote goes here:

:Then start your block quote like this with colon and carry on, putting ref at end at normal. Quotes within the quote can be punctuated normally, like this: "Ouch!" he said.<ref>....</ref>

the colon creates a nice indent.

thanks and best wishes --Claire Robinson 13:16, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
