Name of requester          : Peter Constable
E-mail address of requester: <petercon @ microsoft.com>
Tag to be registered       : bs-Cyrl

English name of language   : Bosnian in Cyrillic script
Native name of language (transcribed into ASCII): bosanski

Reference to published description of the language (book or article):

Bosnian is customarily written both in Cyrillic script and also in 
Latin script.

It is often required, when matching languages, to select a subset of 
documents written in a particular script. When looking up language 
resources, this is even more important, so that text in different 
scripts is not mixed.

Thus, it is important to be able to distinguish between scripts used 
in writing bs: bs-Cyrl vs. bs-Latn.
