A IETF workgroup uses the following style for its documentation:

plain text:
    http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc<num>.txt
pdf:
    http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/pdfrfc/rfc<num>.txt.pdf
html:
    http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc<num>

For Java docs, I think the html version may be better to track the
history and links.
