Thanks for info.

So, how often is Standard Resian used?  Do you have any information?  You 
mentioned that several
people had adopted the orthography in their writing and that it was also 
adopted by some government bodies
(I suppose the latter prefer its neutrality and are glad to have a single 
form for all four dialects!)

Also is there a spoken form for this orthography?  I gather not.

Just curious.

I think the subtag will be especially useful to the government then, and to 
some writers who do not want to write in what is just their own local
