Welcome to the HyTime Users' Group. The HyTime Users' Group is a memberless affiliate of the International SGML Users' Group dedicated to the use and maintenance of the HyTime Standard, ISO/IEC 10744:1992. At this site you will find a variety of materials to support you in your exploration and use of HyTime and its related standards.
The standard itself is available in printed form from the International Organization for Standardization or from national standards bodies, such as ANSI in the US and DIN in Germany. It is available (as WG8 document N1920) in various electronic forms from http://www1.y12.doe.gov/capabilities/sgml/wg8/document/n1920/ on the SC34 (nee WG4 nee WG8) Web site. Before buying or reading the HyTime standard, we urge you to read A Reader's Guide to the HyTime Standard--it will help you find what you need and avoid what you don't need within the vast array of information that is the HyTime standard.
For pointers to all things SGML and XML, see The SGML/XML Web Page.
