Standards pricing

Go to the ANSI website http://www.ansi.org/

Click on "standards store", then SEARCH for "C++" in the search box.

ISO/IEC 14882:2003 costs $281.
INCITS/ISO/IEC 14882-2003 costs $18.

They appear to be the same document.  FWIW, I bought the $18 version and it's the real McCoy.  If, instead, you click on the standard in the "new" area when you first enter the standards store, you will be offered the $281 version.

Why such a price discrepancy?

INCITS stands for "InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards"

I suspect the cheaper pricing is for members of that committee (members of X12 get EDI standards for half price), but there's no provision in the website to validate membership.
