||This paper presents a hybrid approach to standards processing.Standards processing is a term used the denote the procedures of designing andchecking a design in accordance with the relevant code(s) of practice. The use of theconventional printed version of codes of practice is inherently fraught with problems.They are renowned for being voluminous, ambiguous in nature, and frequently full ofcross references. Thus the extraction of relevant information is difEicult. The strategyadopted for representing and processing codes of practice, discussed in this paper isaimed at alleviating these problems. Hypertext is employed as a form of representation,allowing the drawbacks of ambiguity, and cross referencing to be overcome. Inaddition a method of organising standards information is proposed aimed at aiding theretrieval of relevant information.
