Should we use MLA Format? | Project update

Thank you for the data you've added for recipes clipped from magazines.

It's been suggested that, going forward, we strive to use the MLA (Modern Language Association) format as explained here to properly cite electronic sources. In our examples below, we have probably linked more of the elements than MLA requires.
