This is good news.

Minor but I'll say it anyway: Don't instruct users on where to click.
What you have now:

"This ECMAScript Language Specification is also available in HTML file
format _here_."

Instead link the html version in the table:
"The following file can be freely downloaded:"

(Change to use plural "files")

"The following files can be freely downloaded:"
ECMA-262.pdf    3 067 290     Acrobat (r) PDF file
ECMA-262.html    3 067 290     text/html

With a big bold orange link for the html version.
