See http://www.what-buddha-taught.net/Books ... nation.htm
The references are [M.II.31] and [S.IV.327]. (Majjhima Nikaya and Samyutta Nikaya).

This means volume II page 31 of the PTS Pali version. You'll see those page numbers in decent translations (like the Nanamoli/Bodhi MN translation, where they are in the page headings and in square brackets in the text). On Access to Insight they are written like {M ii 31} but that particular Sutta is not on ATI, it seems, looking at the index: http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/mn/index.html

Thanks mike

I was always confuses with what it means with [M.II.31] and [S.IV.327]. I got the M standing for majjhima nikaya but the numbers confused me

I hope it's clear now.

There is more detailed explanation of how Suttas are referred to on Access to Insight here:
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/abbrev.html
Other authors may vary this a little...
