ISO, ANSI, and IEEE standards are usually sold to raise some of the funds
that the various national and international standards bodies (who usually
own the copyright) need to keep afloat; thus they are not normally avail­
able electronically.  Also, the organizations are concerned that electron­
ic copies would make it too easy for people to disseminate doctored ver­
sions of the standards.

Some IEEE standards are available by annual electronic subscription;  see
http://standards.ieee.org/catalog/olis/ (available using the World-Wide
Web via URL http://standards.ieee.org/catalog/olis/)
