Here are my two favorite on-line go-to resources for grammar questions:

http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/ (Grammar Girl)

http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/CMS_FAQ/qatopics.html (CMOS)

I always check both. Grammar Girl usually (but not always) cites CMOS, which is the American publishing standard and is a little slow in reflecting popular stylistic changes. But it is still the standard, and you will not be wrong if you follow what it says on the off chance it and Grammar Girl don't see eye to eye.

Thanks for the links!

I'm still using an old version of Diana Hacker's ELEMENTS OF STYLE that I asked my mom to buy for me when I was in high school. (Yes, I was nerdy.) Anyway, when it was written, the internet was new-ish, and the book doesn't do much in the way of explaining how to cite things from webpages. scratch I need to spring for a new book.
