It has never been official, it was a coup by some people to circumvent the 
fascist ISO rules regarding the diffusion of the specification, using a clever 
lawyer hack. Like every hack, it may last or not.

This morning, everything works, apparently.



The files in this directory constitute the SGML source for ISO/IEC 10179, 
DocumentStyle Semantics and Specification Language. EPS files for graphics are 

These files exist for the sole purpose of supporting the development of DSSSL 
ISO/IEC JTC1/SC18/WG8 and are not to be republished without the permission 
of WG8 and ISO.

ISO holds a copyright on the contents of these files, and readers may examine 
them only with the understanding that the copyright exists.

Because government funds were expended in the development of DIS 10179.2, the
United States Government also claims a nonexclusive, royalty-free copyright
to the contents of the DIS.

Neither ISO nor the United States Government makes any warrantee as to the 
utility of this data for any purpose other than to present it in support
of standards development. Potential implementers of this DIS are warned that
it is being balloted in JTC1 and is subject to change at the end of the
ballot period.
