I did it again, didn't I.  I get so involved in
writing the body of the message that I forget to put
what I said I was going to. I should paste it first
and then write my message. I have learned to attach
attachments first before writing messages about
them--this will be the next step.

Thank you Gerald, for callint it to my attention --and
in such a delicate way, too --smile.

Here is the URL and the first paragraphs explaining
the International ISBN organization and assignments of
numbers. I'm going to go back and read the rest of it
to see  when it started and why.

on three levels: international, group and publisher
