How can I reference a website using the Harvard style?

How would this be different if no author was listed?

    I have no idea what the Harvard style is and how can a website have no authors? Machine-generated content? Mar 1, 2011 at 18:16
  • Many a school requires such referencing. This was answered in the same resource I pointed to in a previous thread. I don't know (yet) how to point this to the other question...

I have your answer at this site.

For Web document, no author (there is an example provided on the site):

Title Year, version number (if applicable), description of document (if applicable), name and place of the sponsor of the source, viewed (Day Month Year), URL (with either full location details or just the main site details).

For Web document, with author:

Author (the person or organisation responsible for the site) Year (that the site was created or last revised), name and place of the sponsor of the source, viewed (Day Month Year), URL.

and an example:

The Body Shop Australia 2003, The Body Shop Australia, Mulgrave, Victoria, viewed 31 January 2003, http://www.thebodyshop.com.au/.
