Send email to server@omg.org with the single word "help" in the body
of the message.  The OMG server will send you instructions on
retrieving OMG documents via email.

The CORBA 1.1 specification is not available via this service, however
(though you can currently get a draft of the CORBA 1.2 spec this way).
You can find the CORBA 1.1 spec in book form at your local technical
bookstore, or you can get it from the OMG for $50:

Object Management Group, Inc.   Telephone: +1-508-820 4300
492 Old Connecticut Path        Facsimile: +1-508-820 4303
Framingham, MA  01701   U.S.A.  Internet: documents@omg.org

I recommend pulling down the CORBA 1.2 spec (if you can handle
Postscript) before dropping $50 for the book form.

Hope this helps.  Any other questions, please let me know.
