Can we please make sure that we add to this:
de-CH German Switzerland ?
de-CH-1996 German Switzerland "new"
de-CH-1901 German Switzerland "old"
As I said before, de-CH is usualy used for the variant
of standard German used in Switzerland (books, newspapers,...).
There are lots of dialects in Switzerland, collectively referred
to as Schwitzertu"tsch, but there are many dialects in Germany
and Austria, too. Written German as used in Switzerland is also
defined by Duden.
