Punctuation made simple This is a great little site that deals with most of the punctuation issues that cause trouble:
Colon | Semicolon | Comma | Apostrophe
Strangely it ignores the hyphen: one of my favourites! The Economist covers it extensively here. Particularly note their part 6: Adjectives formed from two or more words.
Another simple guide to punctuation is here.

REFLIST: Software to check research papers and theses for consistency of references

Download REFLIST (81K zip file). Unzip the file into a suitable folder and read REFLIST.TXT for user manual. Note that the program is very old (I wrote it when I was doing my PhD in the late 1980s) and will not run in Windows 7, unless you run it within a DOS simulator such as DOSBox, which is free.
