     What ever replies you receive, please let the rest of us know if 
there is any current solution. It is a one-way process,  we can cite the 
regular  paper literature here, but not vice-versa. If enough of us TRY 
to cite newgroups in our papers, then perhaps paper journal  editors will 
wake up and collectively decide on some general format. It would 
help if the people who set up this software we are using now, would place
some handle for use in citation. I have suggested many times, that we 
should use the same format as in the paper literature, with volume, and
page numbers being substituted with time parameters.

   i.e.  Smith, J. D. (1996) Bionet.immunology 916, 1801

       where the 916 refers to September 16th, and 1801 is 1 min past six
