That sounds like it was an ISO *639-2* request.  I think a 639-3
request might be looked on more favorably.

No,  John.  I want formats that are actually       John Cowan
useful, rather than over-featured megaliths that
address all questions by piling on ridiculous      cowan at
internal links in forms which are hideously
over-complex. --Simon St. Laurent on xml-dev
