My printed copy of the Haskell 98 report is numbered:

  YaleU/DCS/RR-1106

Copies can no doubt be obtained from the Yale Haskell Group though I'm
afraid I don't know who you should write to or how much money to send.

It would be a good idea if haskell.org described how to get a copy but
I don't know who maintains those pages.  As it is, you have to infer
the existence of a Yale tech report for the language from the fact
that the language report cites a tech report for the library :-)

[I'm less concerned about GHC documentation because it comes with the
compiler and it seems unlikely that you'd want one and not the other.]
