Re: language tags
I'm starting to think that the two-letter ISO 639 codes might be better than
the UDC numbers after all, if only because the ISO 639 codes are already
used in computer systems, for example in the LANG environment variable on
many UNIX systems.
However, my copy of ISO 639 (dated 1967) only lists 37 languages, and our
library's ISO Catalogue (which is itself a few years old) lists the 1967
document as being the latest list of language symbols. Are these sufficient?
