Is there such a thing? 

I'm asking this question because of recent discussions on "should" and
"shall." It may be that the ISO uses these words in (perhaps subtly)
different ways than (say) W3C. If so, we should know, and a style guide
would tell us.

Also, during the course of drafting this version of the RM, Martin Bryan
made a series of extraordinarily helpful suggestions, based on his
knowledge of the usual (mandated?) structure for an ISO standard.

But it would be best to have this knowledge direct from the source, rther
than relying on individual voices and arcane lore.

If no electronic copy an an ISO style guide exists, but a printed one
does, could copies be made of it and distributed in Baltimore?
