*Scotland IS a country, Karen* (a great country over a thousand years 
older than Germany - well, even the USA is an older country than 
Germany!), whatever you and Sony Corp may believe (or wish others 
believed). How can it be that new countries, such as Bosnia and Kosovo 
and other countries only recently emerged from bloody wars, are now 
being accepted as legitimate countries by the politically-motivated 
using as tools lists such as this (for the purposes of ISO 639 currently 
under joint US-Austrian control), who refuse to accept as legitimate 
countries so many peaceful old countries with their own ancient legal 
and admistrative systems, such as Scotland is?
