Wow... It used to be the other way around. ANSI would sell it for much
less, and ISO would want an arm and a leg.
Wait, there's some confusion here. INCITS is ANSI's "Technical Advisory
Group for ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1" (see www.incits.org).
That is, it's part of ANSI, not part of ISO. So ISO/IEC 14882:2003
refers to the ISO document, and INCITS/ISO/IEC 14882-2003 presumably
refers to the INCITS (i.e. ANSI) version of the document.

Right. So, the INCITS one is ANSI, and all proceedings from selling
copies of that PDF file go directly to ANSI. The other one is ISO-owned
and thus, even though ANSI sells it, most of the proceedings go to ISO,
which wants the limbs too. I think my confusion was in part due to the
fact that ISO didn't use to sell electronic versions, only ANSI did. It
has changed apparently. Thanks for clarifying this.

You can also buy it directly on www.iso.org for about $350, if you want to
play the limbs only. ;-)
