One very good reason to monitor and edit the submissions on a regular basis. 
Given a reasonable framework to start with, I suspect most people will make 
an effort to work within it. Once a page has been deemed free from errors by 
the majority, it can be locked down to restrict further edits (not that I 
would want to go that far).

Also available in an encrypted password protected PDF format. Local libraries 
are supposed to be able to supply any ISO/DIN standard on request, but due to 
"funding restrictions" they never seem able to deliver.

Cutting and pasting in to wiki format. Not a difficult task, just time 
consuming. Once in the wiki, notes could be added to highlight differences 
between the various standards. I'll try my local library again, and if they 
still can't get the ISO/DIN, I'll mail Tom.
