case study name and the URL. I realize, naturally, that when one is
online, the URL is superfluous, and indeed often very ugly. Sorry about

URLs, of course. Yes, I know one could "Google" the title and find the

published on the web, and create a standard for referencing them.
If/when such a standard exists, please do inform me of it! Until then, I
think it is reasonable to be complete in referencing the URL as the
