I doubt it would be a good idea to cite internet sites simply because
they tend to be somewhat less permanent than printed copy (now
*there's* an understatement!). Ephemeral is the word that comes
to mind. If the site disappears or changes its URL, your citation
becomes meaningless, not to mention frustrating to the reader.
