> What is a "language collection code"?

ISO 639-2 contains two kinds of code elements: ones like "nds" that
represent particular languages (Low Saxon in this case), and ones
like "afa" that represent collections of languages (Afro-Asiatic
languages in this case).  The "mis" collection represents the
collection of all languages (about 130) that don't fit into any
other collection.  Adding this comment will clarify that.

The experiences of the past show                John Cowan
that there has always been a discrepancy        cowan at ccil.org
between plans and performance.                  http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
