It appears that xstandard is currently an ActiveX/COM dll. So if you
want to use it on a website, you place the necessary files onto the
server, and create the appropriate HTML markup. The user's browser
will download and install the ActiveX control.

There is a note that a Moz compatible version will be out sometime in
October (presumably not an ActiveX control...)

Alternatively, you can embed it into a VB/Access/Delphi/etc app (if
you are writing some kind of desktop application). In which case you'd
install it onto the desktop where the app is going to be run.
