How hypertext methods, using the internal structure of standards documents, can promote the effective utilization of standards, is described. A system that allows interactive browsing, keyword searching, and annotation is presented, and generation of selected parts of a particular standards document (one used for designing user interface software) is discussed. It is concluded that standards documents are made more useful by having them online and supporting the structural retrieval operations of hypertext methods, and that computer standards should pave the wave for how standards in general are disseminated and used in the future.<
