A really good question, without a single best answer.  But not 
particularly helpful in the Norwegian context, because the extlang 
syntax is not available for Norwegian as it is for Chinese:

For Cantonese (Yue), you can use "zh" or "yue" or "zh-yue".

For Bokmål, you can use "no" or "nb", but NOT "no-nb" or "no-nob".
