Do you know something newer? Nothing more than the URLs you already found. According to this article: http://www.mel.nist.gov/div826/msid/sima/04_spectro.html the ASTM took over the standards from the AIA: ... In 1990, manufacturers of analytical instrumentation, through their trade organization, the Analytical Instrument Association (AIA), sponsored the development of a series of standards to interchange analytical data across vendor platforms. These standards, known as ANalytical Data Interchange (ANDI) standards, are supported by numerous commercial software products and have since been taken over by ASTM and are now under the purview of subcommittee E13.15 on analytical Data Management. The ASTM/ANDI standards currently support only chromatography and mass spectrometry data. (That article also contains a discussion of the benefits of using an XML-based approach.) The transfer from AIA to ASTM may partly explain why the old URL no longer works. More about the transfer of maintenance responsibility is in this article, which I may have already referenced in a previous response: http://pubs.acs.org/hotartcl/tcaw/98/may/stan.html There's also this, from a Google Groups search: http://groups-beta.google.com/group/sci.techniques.mass-spec/browse_thread/thread/cf36075400d4dee/b295c1613a9d1878?q=aia+astm+chromatography&rnum=2&hl=en#b295c1613a9d1878 If you find anything else, I'd be interested. --Russ
