The WARC (Web Archive) file format is intended to supersede the "ARC" file format and is now used by many libraries and archives, including the Internet Archive.   This is the specification in draft form which might still be useful because it is available for free.   ISO standards, unlike Internet Engineering Task Force standards, cost money .

Langbein (then from University of Chicago) 1978 Abstract: In this essay I shall address the modem American system of plea bargaining from a perspective that must appear bizarre, although I hope to persuade you that it is illuminating.  I am going to contrast plea bargaining with the medieval European law of torture.  My thesis is that there are remarkable parallels in...
