I think the web pages are still a work in progress:

As I read that mail, the PDF always requires a username (you can get one
without cost by joining the Austin group).  Last week, only the PDF link
was on the catalog page, and the restricted HTML mentioned in the above
link used to require a password for everything.  But now both the PDF and
HTML links are on the catalog page, and the restricted HTML link is simply
a redirect to the catalog page.  On the other hand, there hasn't been a
followup announcement on the Austin group list mentioning that the HTML is
a finished product, so that may explain why not all the HTML features,
like searches, are working yet.

I'm also hoping it will get better over the course of the next week; the
general understanding is that once POSIX 2008/SUSv4 is an approved
standard, that it should be at least as open on the web as SUSv3.
