WOW! Nice find.
Could it possibly be a mistake that it's an open directory?
Surprised to see the whole book posted.

Could be, if you go to the home page it looks like this is what the site does, but for members and corporates, not for the lowly web browser.

Be nice if you could figure out a way to save it locally and read it offline.

OTOH, they should make this stuff available, even better if they could do it in plain english..

Floridas building codes are available here:

You SHOULD be able to make the site available off line. Just add it to your Favorites column(or whatever your particular browser calls it), click the option that says "make available off line". This would take up a massive amount of space but it would be available to read at your leisure.
Just an idea.

Here is a link to a pdf version of the draft NEC2005. I don't what differences there are between the draft and the official version.

Yeah, I tried that already actually.. guess they've got coding or something in place to not allow it.

I tried it. All I could get was the index. When I clicked on any of the Articles, nothing happened and I got an error message that said "Java applet does not work". I don't even know what that means. Anybody?

(I don't really care because I have the 2005 hard bound Handbook version.)

Something wrong with your Java install?

Works fine here, just couldn't get it save offline.

The pages are viewed using a "viewer" so I suppose my above comment is uncorrect. The index can be saved but not the individual pages. When more time is at my disposal I may check to see what the differences are between the pdf and the realview pages. If the pages are the same I may have ot zip the pdf as its a huge file and space is at a premium right now.
