UK comments on ISO/IEC FCD 15445- Information technology – HyperText Markup Language (HTML) (SC34 N011 & SC34 N0010)
The UK APPROVES the text with the following comments.
The UK has no comments on the technical content of the draft standard however there are two issues of concern to the UK National Body that need resolution.
The Copyright Notice that is contained on page 1 of SC34 N0010 is unacceptable in an International Standard published by ISO.
2.Links to other texts not under the control of ISO
The UK National Body has concerns that a reader following the links in an online version of ISO/IEC 15445 could be misled into thinking that all subordinate documents have been endorsed by ISO. For example, the UK NB followed links to a page containing an online order form for Dave Raggett’s book on HTML 4.0. ISO has no control over the content of third party documents that are referenced by links and it should be made clear that access to documents below the first level of subordination is outside of the control of ISO ITTF.
