**  The only thing that committee did was change the percentage margins
around the new nominal voltage of 230 to +10% and -6%.  IIRC, previously the
numbers were +6% and -10% around 240.

Works out virtually the same *actual* upper and lower limits on voltage.

Funny how incandescent light bulbs are still labelled as 240V.

Very few countries used 230V.

Exactly the same trick was done in the UK to 'harmonise' us with Continental
Europe where 220V was the norm.
