Hi Andreas,

The BibLaTeX extension provides an 'online' entry type.


I see also that R provides a 'Misc' entry type for its FAQ.  Other sites
recommend 'Misc' as well.


It is good to follow existing standards, but I would prefer to not end up
cumulating all the limitations of the world in debian/usptream.  Unicode,
URLs,... we are in 2012, so let's use them.
