Hi Tex,

That's great.  A couple more requests:

-  Please capitalise the first letter of each ISO 15924 script code (eg
Hans, Hant).

-  Please add a link to:
   ISO 15924 Codes for the representation of names of scripts

Many thanks,

I added them. I also added some of the IANA tags.

The page now uses CSS tags to color code language tags that come from
ISO 639,
IANA registry, RFC 3066bis, or are deprecated.
(I am not adding further 3066bis tags for now.)

I would appreciate it if suggestions for further additions came in the
form of:
    "add this language tag to these regions."

(Misha's suggestions were obvious. I am hoping to get more corrections

My objective remains to address the problem (perhaps my problem) of
whether a
tag should be one or two or more subtags
and the establishment of criteria for making the choice.

I hope there will be further discussion of that issue.
