RE: sunshine and standards development
Recently I bought an ISO spec online through the ANSI web store
(http://webstore.ansi.org/ansidocstore/default.asp). I can't remember which
one it was (so many specs these days), but I do remember that it was about
1/3 of the cost listed on the ISO site. The spec on the ISO site was offered
in print via mail only whereas ANSI offered it as was PDF only.

the British Standards Institute, for example, would I pay an equivalent
