ANSI standard /an'see stan'd*rd/
The ANSI standard usage
of `ANSI standard' refers to any practice which is typical or broadly
done. It's most appropriately applied to things that everyone does that
are not quite regulation. For example: ANSI standard shaking of a
laser printer cartridge to get extra life from it, or the ANSI
standard word tripling in names of usenet alt groups.
