ISO/IEC 15445:2000, also known as ISO-HTML, provides an International Standard for the
core of the HyperText Markup Language. Unless you are an SGML junkie and can
decipher such incomprehensible prose as
The NAME attribute value
specification shall be processed as if the declared value were NAME, then
I strongly recommend you read the User's Guide, which
will tell you everything that you can find in ISO-HTML, and explain what it
I struggled with the documentation for ML-Lex and ML-Yacc included in
the SML/NJ distribution, and ended up merging that
documentation into my own notes to produce a "User's Guide to ML-Lex and
ML-Yacc". This contains a fully worked example, an index, and is GPLed.
- A PDF booklet, 69 pages plus index, 589
Kbytes. Typeset for A4 paper, but should be readable if printed on US letter.
- A PostScript booklet, 69 pages plus index,
823 Kbytes. Typeset for A4 paper, but should be readable if printed on US
For the brave, a PostScript booklet, 69
pages plus index, 853 Kbytes. Typeset for A4 paper in signatures of 3 sheets
with 12 pages per signature. This PostScript is to be printed recto-verso on
ISO A4 paper. You then have to peel off the signatures, 3 sheets (12 pages)
at a time, and fold the three sheets together with the consecutive page
numbers on the inside of the fold. Finally you have to bind the signatures
together to get an ISO A5 sized book. Hint: Practice on a few pages before
sending the whole file to the printer; it will save you a lot of ink.
- The source code tar ball including worked
examples, 1.4 Mbytes.
The latest version shows how to use "8-bit" ML-Lex with Unicode, and
includes a working example which parses a UTF-32 encoded file. The technique
may also be used with UTF-8, UTF-16 and other encodings.
If you find errors or omissions in the Guide, or find subjects that need a
more thorough discussion, send a note to < guide at rogerprice dot org >
and I will try to fix the problem.

Small hotels are being suffocated by the mass marketing activity of
on-line e-distributors, (Online Travel Booking Agencies). The
commission rates, 15-25 %, of these parasitic intermediaries directly
affect the rates you are charged, and reduces our investment in your
comfort and the service we offer you. Please book directly with your
hotel, to protect the quality and existence of the small independent
hotel, and the quality of service offered.

- fairer prices: by reserving directly with your preferred hotel,
by telephone or its official website, you will pay the same price
(and sometimes less!) and you do not contribute to others’ commissions
(between 15 and 25%).
- better availablity: by contacting the hotelier directly you will know
his availability in “real time” and not what was or may have been
available on a distant website.
- more freedom: by calling directly you can talk with him, determine
your needs with him, discuss the reservation conditions, choose your
room and associated services and inform him of your arrival time so we
are better prepared to welcome those particularly early or late
- better welcome: you can immediately empathize with your hotelier
(normally in several languages), he is the best person to help you
prepare your stay and your visits in and around his hotel.
- independent business friendly: by helping real tourism, you help
preserve small businesses, their creativity, individuality and
familiarity; their place in helping tourism in a small town and their
