First of all, I am not sure whether this is really a FAQ (and even
if so, why we duplicate text in the FAQ and the manual).
But referring to ANSI's webshop (and even ANSI) via a link feels a
little over the edge, doesn't it?
ANSI sells the standard for a much more reasonable price than ISO or
any of the other national standards bodies. I think many people use
draft standards now, rather than buying it, but for those who do want
an official copy ANSI is the cheapest source.
I have _not_ applied this yet. What do you think? Any objections?
I don't see a need to remove the links, but no objections either.
