RE Documents and costs

The ISO standards are public as much as any books.  Books aren't free but
they are public.  Standards are sold and that is how they pay for the costs
of producing them -- though some standards groups are moving to make them
available free of charge on the Internet. 

There is one time when the documents are free.  When they are up for review
as drafts there is no charge.
