    Citing RFC's in MLA format

    I'm writing a research paper on DNSSEC and I have to cite all source in MLA format. Some of major sources are RFC 4033, 4034, and 4035.

    Does anybody have any idea how these ought to be classified?

    At a guess, write "(RFC XXXX, page #)" inline. You can make a full citation (with authors, title, publication, press and date) in you bibliography or whatever your instructor wants instead. Make sure you index by RFC XXXX though.

    It seems that other people have just cited it as a website, and I managed to confirm that MLA has said nothing about RFC's...
