    restrictive clause

    I wrote the following sentence in a footnote:

    See also Articles R131-32 and R131-33 of the Code du Sport, which detail the powers of sports federations.

    I'm wondering whether the sentence should read:

    See also Articles R131-32 and R131-33 of the Code du Sport that detail the powers of sports federations.

    I'm not sure whether what follows "Sport" is a restrictive clause or not. The first sentence sounds better to me. What do you think?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Re: restrictive clause

    That R131 thing already specifies something. Non-restrictive: comma plus 'which'.
