Stephen, the reference you are looking for is:

Brunschede, H., Dove, T.L., and Bremer, H. (1977) J. Bacteriol. 129, 1020-1033.

This gives a simple method for the non-isotopic determination of protein, RNA
and DNA, using absorbancies after various acid/alkali steps.  It works!  well
- I've used the RNA and protein part ;-)

Good luck,
