We have tried to use the official[1] short names:
SQL-92
SQL:1999
SQL:2003

- But it's true that those short names are not used consistently
throughout the documentation.

I see no reason not to use the offical short names; to me, they look OK
text-wise. But it boils down to a matter of taste.


Note 1:
http://books.elsevier.com/mk/default.asp?isbn=1558604561 has a section on
this subject.
