That's the advice given in the manual of style...

"If there is an institutionalized identifier (URI) for a document, cite
the most specific identifier. For example, link to
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224 rather than to
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/. "

You're encouraged to note the latest version too; see the example
citation of HTML4 for details.

Hmm... I dunno if I like the "This version of the HTML 4.01
Recommendation is ..." bit.

Salt to taste.
