The HTML version used for this specification is really HTML 4.0. It's
definitely not a "PC type format". I presume you're actually refering to
the downloaded archives:

http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40-971218/html40.tgz
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40-971218/html40.zip

The first one is a gzip'ed tar file, the second one is a simple zip
file. The former is more unix friendly and the latter is more MS Windows
friendly. This said, there are freely available MacIntosh programs you
can find to deal with both types of archives.
