You've hit on something that is a pet peeve of mine -- the adherence to
international standards by textbooks. Specifically the lack thereof. Sigh.

 * SATP/STP were changed in 1982. Today, only about half of first-year
textbooks present the correct information.

 * inorganic nomenclature (IUPAC Red Book) was substantially revised in
2005. Basically zero textbooks present the correct information.

 * states of matter: are the subscript? italicized? To the best of my
knowledge, this has never changed. Why are first-year textbooks still all
over the map with this?

Sorry about the rant. I enjoyed reading about the upcoming new standards, but
I doubt textbooks will change anytime soon. But I will update my textbook
when they become official. [2]
