This claims to have the rules according to Hoyle (about half-way down the
page) and assuming it's right, then it should be a good place to start.
(Note sure if Hoyle is as recognized elsewhere as he is here in the States,
but "the rules according to Hoyle" is often seen as the 'bible' of card rules,
from what I can tell.)
