Thanks to everyone who replied to my request.

I guess some of you wonder why I asked the question, and was so eager about the formal standard. I'll tell:

A while ago, I got so frustrated over the enormous numbers of 'standards' I (have to) relate to (ref. Tanenbaum: The good thing about standardsSmile | :) ), that I sat down to make survey of 'Standards I Have Met'. I went though a large number of areas, from storage media to lightbulb sockets to battery cells to SCSI plugs (my equipment used 8 different ones - but there is said to be 14 ones in use) before I ditched SCSI), USB plugs (one more now, and I will be tempted to let USB go the same way as SCSI), ... I also made sections of software standards I have tried to adhere to, such as document formats, character encodings, binary numeric formats etc.

In almost every every, there were so many 'standards' that it turned my frustration into fascination. I never thought there would be that many! So I decided to try to make the list as complete as possible. I took a look at my PC mainboard to see which I had forgtten (I put my PCs together from separate parts, so I do relate to the 'standards'), and asked about the standard for these front panel(++) headers to get it into my list. I guess they go into my list as something like 'Unidentified standard(??) #27' Smile | :)
