When reviewing the Unicode HOWTO, I found a reference to ISO as "International Standards Organization", which should instead read "International Organization for Standardization".

Add the link: 

Python 3: https://docs.python.org/3/howto/unicode.html
Python 2: https://docs.python.org/2/howto/unicode.html

Both of 2 and 3 howto unicode use "International Standards Organization"

Since I had the same wrong idea, I dug further into the site.
The explanation is at https://www.iso.org/about-us.html
'''
It's all in the name

Because 'International Organization for Standardization' would have different acronyms in different languages (IOS in English, OIN in French for Organisation internationale de normalisation), our founders decided to give it the short form ISO. ISO is derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal. Whatever the country, whatever the language, we are always ISO.
