wget is now running in the background. Thanks for the commandline. 
Took me a while to find a win32 version, but it works.

This should be 8879 (as Barbara pointed out, the SGML standard).
It 's Annex D that contains the "old" entity files iso-****. 
ISO published TR 9573-13 on paper, the UDC is 681.3.06:655.53.
