Does the International Signage Organization really exist or is it really
the International Standards Organization? Does the ISO Document 3156
really exist? Does anyone have a URL to this or any equivalent document?
If you don't have a URL, pointers to any other resources are fine.
Professor Farber, would you mind querying the IP list?
What are some examples of top-level domain names? ".com", ".edu", and
".org" are some example top-level domain names. But geographic country
codes like France (".fr") and Germany (".de") are also some examples.
How did Postel come up with that list? He was accidently very clever a
long time ago. What if someone wanted to use their geographic country
as a top-level domain name? Well, it turns out that there's a list
maintained by the ISO, the International Signage Organization, of
two-letter codes for geographic countries. Postel decided to use the
two-letter codes from the ISO Document 3156 list for geographic country
Thanks in advance for your help,
