Hello Arnoud,

It looks as if you have tried to print the file iso-html.iso-html
which is intended to be browsed. (If you want to browse this file, you
might have to change the extension to .html or .htm to get your
browser to recognize it as "HTML".)  If you prefer to read letter
paper, print out iso-html.letter.ps. If you prefer A4 paper, print out
iso-html.ps.

Now that the formal JTC1 process is underway, your organization's
comments should be addressed to your National Standards Body (NB)
e.g. ANSI in the US, BSI in the UK, Afnor in France, ABNT in Brasil,
etc.  Each country has its local procedures.  Some have e-mail lists.
A written submission from your organisation to your NB clearly
indicating that you are commenting on the ISO-HTML Committee Draft is
a common alternative.  There is a mailing list for people acredited by
their NBs to the JTC1 working group, but first you have to join your
NB.

Best Regards,
Roger
