international registered mail prices: secret?

If one goes in to a Swiss Post branch and asks to send a letter registered to England, one might be charged 9.70 CHF.

How might one predict this price using information published by Swiss Post? For example, their page Prices for international letters private Postage costs for sending letters abroad includes three categories "PRIORITY", "ECONOMY" and "URGENT", but even after the arduous task of expanding all these entries is complete (look, our document is interactive!), there is no mention of registered.

By contrast, their page Prices for domestic letters private Postage costs for letter mail in Switzerland, despite being even more "interactive" than the other document, will eventually reveal registered (domestic) prices under section "A Mail Plus and Registered prices" -> "Registered".

There are various PDFs linked on the right hand side (PDFs? For the love of Christ, why?), but after scanning through them, I don't think the information is there either.

So is the pricing a secret or am I being dense?

Re: international registered mail prices: secret?

The prices are all in the pdf "Services and prices for private customers (PDF, 1.9 MB)" on that page:

Europe, 51-100g, Standard letter - 3.70, plus surcharge for registered mail 6.00 = your 9.70 Fr that you paid

Also the price calculator also offers up registered mail as an option:

albeit only available together with PRIORITY letter.
