A style manual by Janice R. Walker and Todd Taylor, published by Columbia University Press. It is based on Walker's earlier Walker/ACW Style Sheet. It covers both production of documents and citation of other documents online.

CGOS describes a standard style for citing a wide variety of online sources: documents found via the World Wide Web, Gopher, FTP, and Telnet; email, mailing lists, and newsgroups; "synchronous communication sites," such as chat rooms and MUDs; reference works located online; electronic publications and online databases; and software titles, including video games.

For example, here are citations of the pages used as references for this writeup:
