The mapping you're looking for comes from the IntStd join table,
which shows a reference to the base standard (in this case LSB)
as well as a link to the actual page if available.  When these
were added there wasn't an LSB page written yet for these,
so I was reluctant to put the link in there.  We should go back
and add it.
