ISO and JIS have to do with the angle (?) of the square taper on the BB. Those are the two standards. Basically, if yo go with a Campy BB (ISO), you can use a Campy, Miche, or (I think) Gippiemme crank. With a Shimano, Sugino, or Hatta BB (JIS), you can use a Shimano, Sugino, or Bulletproof crank.
Of course, there are others that fall into each category, but those are the basics. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
