For your information:

The Open Group announces availability of the XNFS Version 3W specification on the World Wide Web:

The XNFS Version 3W specification (including WebNFS extensions) is now available on the World Wide Web at http://www.opengroup.org/pubs/catalog/c702.htm

This Open Systems NFS (XNFSv3W) Open Group Technical Standard is aligned with Sun's NFS Version 3, and incorporates the Sun WebNFS(TM) extensions. The process of accessing remote files and directories as though they were part of the local file system hierarchy is commonly known as 'transparent file access' (TFA). The most widely used heterogeneous TFS architecture is the Network File System (NFS), originally developed by Sun Microsytems. The Open Group's XNFS offers a complete solution to transparent file access between 'open-system-compliant' systems, through the XNFS protocols for interoperability, and The Open Group's XSI interfaces (defined in Document C606, see Document Set T912) for application/user portability (as identified in several XNFS appendixes).
