Thanks for pointing this out.  The ISO/IEC JTC1/WG4 working group
asked the ISO-HTML editors to prepare a Final Committee Draft marked
up using ISO-HTML for them to review before their next meeting.  The
document is, as Masayasu points out, _work in progress_.
 
The editors use a directory at the ftp site to exchange files.  It is
not a public offering and nothing in there has any more value than
yesterday's lunch wrapper.

The correct URLs are http://purl.org/NET/ISO+IEC.15445/FinalCD.html
and http://purl.org/NET/ISO+IEC.15445/Users-Guide.html.  Any direct
reference to "woodworm" is ephemeral.

Best Regards,
Roger
