Citations Part 2 will give you a list of all paper citations, with annotations, for the subject category Development of standards - Reality checks. This MSW file can be word-searched for authors and topics. Direct hyperlinks to the papers included in this Part 2 are shown in the display of the citations.

All papers Part 2
will give you the complete set of the Part 2 papers (Note: 190 pages, 14 MB in pdf; it might take a few minutes to download, depending on your Internet access setup). After downloading that file, you can speed up your search for a given paper by scrolling down in the "Thumbnails" palette, looking for the paper titles that appear in large bold thumbnails. Alternately, you can look in the "Bookmarks" palette for the abbreviated paper FILENAMES. These will appear without the section subheadings for the palette tree in + mode. By toggling from the + to the - mode on any given paper FILENAME, you will pop up the section headings and figures numbers for that paper.

To download separately the individual papers, listed below:

The pdf files of each individual paper (bit map, not searchable) are generally large, as indicated in the [xx MB] accompanying the filename abbreviation (which is the hyperlink) and the complete paper title in the following chronological list. Knowing which paper is of interest to you, as determined by your word search or by a seemingly interesting title, you can go directly to that one paper. To speed-up your search, each pdf file includes thumbnails and bookmarks palettes. The bookmarks show the section headings and the figure/table numbers corresponding to the figure captions or table titles that are included in the Text Part 2 file.
