This information is a follow-up to the article on ISO Standards that appeared in Computer Shopper magazine in the UK (Issue 129, dated 1998-November, on Pages 793 to 797 inclusive). It comprises some additional tables, followed by a number of links to Internet sites with various further standards information.
This file was originally located at: <http://www.aegis1.demon.co.uk/standard/cs129s.htm>
The following information adds to that printed in the article. For reasons of space, the first table was reduced in size in the magazine. A number of items were omitted. It is reproduced here in full. The other three tables were completely omitted from the printed article for the same reason, and are included here for completeness.

These codes are intended for use only within Great Britain. When used internationally, the 'sub-entities' should be prefixed with the appropriate two-letter ISO 3166 Country ID and a hyphen; eg 'GB-DOR' for Dorset.
Sites that appear in Red indicate that the address has recently failed. Where possible the new address is shown in the following entry, otherwise I am still looking for suitable Web Page links to include here. Sites come and go all the time. It isn't possible to always be up to date.
As usual, you can explore the other contents on each of these sites by simply reducing the address back to each '/' marker, one at a time.
