In the case where the tag is based on a name not appearing in the
description, that name should appear, thus:  "Description: The
Soel'ring dialect of North Frisian (also called Syltring)"

Note that in the Registry itself, "oe" in Descriptions should become a
proper "ö", since the Registry is now UTF-8.
