I would do neither. I would use the source templates created for British
sources, of which this is one, designed by our very own Caroline Gurney. Go
to www.leicester.co.uk/tmg/sources.htm and download a file with all of her
sources. One of the problems with the Mills based sources is that they are
written specifically and don't take into account variations; also they seem
to presume American sources.
