Well, "DIS 10646" is the Draft International Standard, particularly
Draft 1, from ~1990 or ~1991. (Sometimes it might have been called
10646.1.) Therefore it would likely only be in print form (or printed
and scanned form). It's pretty old. What I understand is that Draft 1
got shot down because it was at variance with the nascent Unicode
effort; Draft 2 was eventually adopted as ISO 10646:1993, and is
equivalent to Unicode 1.1. (10646-1:1993 plus Amendments 5 to 7 =
Unicode 2.0.)

You can look into the wg2 web site at that will give you some versions of these documents (Google or your favorite search engine will be your friend) although all that may disappear any day. If you tell me what you are looking for I can help you. Bear in mind that anything that ISO does is copyrighted. Therefore, forget about a free online version of DIS 10646 of whatever version you are looking for.
