Search for the appropriate knot in Ashley's Book of Knots.

That site is not specific enough (or, in other words, it's too
general).

It doesn't have a "nylon to nylon" selection.

Actually, aramid fibers are nylon. They're structured with different
chemical bonds than the nylon used in monofilament line. (End of snotty
sounding chemistry lesson...that's all I know about the fiber). Kevlar is
also an aramid fiber.
The aramid lines are woven polyfilament which is why adhesives will work on
them. It's still best practice to use a flexible adhesive (like RC-56, used
widely for model RC airplanes) over a knotted joint. The use of a flexible
adhesive allows the line to flex with the line, rather than chafing it.
Hope this helps some,
Geezer
