In November 1996 we were authorized to act as the project editors of the ISO/IEC International Standard 15445:1999 for HTML, informally known as "ISO-HTML". The formal specification that we developed is intended for SGML experts who are familiar with the SGML family of International Standards, and as such is challenging to read. However we wanted the standard to be accessible to readers who do not spend their time working on SGML standards. This User's Guide is intended to encourage and assist people wishing to develop high quality IT applications on the World Wide Web and set high standards of document design and management. We assume a familiarity with the W3C Recommendation for HTML 4.0 and the HTML 4.0 Specification Errata, but the reader is not expected to be an expert in SGML.
We have received help and encouragement from many people during the development of the International Standard and this User's Guide. Many members of the IETF HTML Working Group commented on the early strawman which led to the formal introduction of the ISO-HTML project. We also received assistance from the staff of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and from people in W3C member organizations. We have worked in close cooperation with the W3C Working Group which developed the HTML 4.0 Recommendation, and at the invitation of the W3C, we have taken the HTML 4.0 Recommendation as a referenced text. The ISO/IEC Working Group responsible for the SGML family of standards have provided us with direction, and encouraged and supported our close liaison with the W3C. We have also received help directly from members of National Bodies and from members of the public commenting in general mailing lists. A special word of thanks and appreciation is due to Dave Raggett who accepted an invitation to act as Invited Expert at the Dublin meeting held in July 1997 which established the principle of technically harmonized text, and made ISO-HTML a true subset of the HTML 4.0 strict specification.
This is not a formal document, neither is it intended as a reference specification, and it is not appropriate to cite it as such. However, if you the reader find it useful, then we will have met our objectives.
