Thanks.  I have updated it to:
	
	1.12) Where can I get a copy of the SQL standards?
	
	There are two major standards, SQL92 and SQL99. These standards are
	endorsed by ANSI and ISO. A draft of the SQL92 standard is available at
	http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~shadow/sql/sql1992.txt. A draft of
	the SQL99 standard is at
	http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/dbms/Data/Papers-Other/SQL1999/ansi-iso-9075-2-1999.pdf.
	The draft SQL 2003 standard is at
	http://www.wiscorp.com/sql/sql_2003_standard.zip
	
	Some SQL standards web pages are:
	
	    * http://troels.arvin.dk/db/rdbms/links/#standards
	    * http://www.wiscorp.com/SQLStandards.html
	    * http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~shadow/sql.html#syntax (SQL92)
	    * http://dbs.uni-leipzig.de/en/lokal/standards.pdf (paper)

Also the Developer FAQ link on the developers page was out of date but
has just been fixed.
