The "ISO-8859-X specs" are not available on the Unicode
website. The real "specs" are the ISO standards themselves,
which are available from or from various
national standards organizations. In the U.S., contact

What is available on the Unicode website are mapping tables
between the ISO 8859-X parts of the ISO 8859 standard
and the Unicode Standard. Those mapping tables *are*
generally up-to-date, reflecting the most recent versions
of the parts of the ISO 8859 standard.

And double-check your information about dates (and refresh
any local cache of these that you have). The dates I show
for the files are:

8859-1.TXT:# Date: 1999 July 27
8859-2.TXT:# Date: 1999 July 27
8859-3.TXT:# Date: 1999 July 27
