Ok, I will use that format. Thanks.

Another thing: the article(s) that I am citing actually have a lot of reference numbers, including ISBNs and ISSNs. It is no longer intuitively obvious to me which ones should be included. The fact that RFCs are now getting DOI numbers is pretty crazy—on top of the ISSNs.

If all are available, is there a hierarchy of which should be included, and in what order? Or do we just go with what we feel is the most appropriate for the particular case?
