First off, congratulations!  I am always excited to hear when someone
makes it to the end of the long road.  And I am very pleased that
Athena and Artemis were helpful to you along that road.

You should use the Autobk and Ifeffit references.  They are certainly
relevant since A&A are just front ends to those algorithms.

The issue of a reference for A&A is an annoying one.  For now the best
thing is the proceedings for the XAFS12 conference, which have not yet
been published and which is slowily going through the editing process
right now.  Here is a possible reference:
    B. Ravel and M. Newville
    "Athena and Artemis: Interactive graphical data analysis using
    Physica Scripta
    to be published (2005)

Unfortunately, due to the insanely slow pace of the Physica Scripta
people, there is not a better reference.

Good luck with the rest of your writing!
