Some of the older links shown are known to be not working and are marked as 'N/A' at present. When time permits, this problem will be resolved. There may be a few other links that have failed, but hopefully there is enough here that still works for everyone to find the information that they require. Some links have [Alt] after them. This denotes an alternative address.

The new site will contain revised versions of the ISO 8601 information files and will incorporate some screen shots to illustrate the points being made. The site should be ready before the end of 1998.
