      No activity on this site, therefore something to talk about.
       
      The ISO 3166 country code
          1. Gives the universal time offset for most of the world.
              State codes and region codes can cover the other parts of the world. 
          2. Provides the ISO4217 currency code.
          3. Provides the ISO 639-1 Usually one language is the official language.
       
      The ISO 4217 code currency code
          1. Can be used for currency conversion.
          2. Provides the currency format (##,###.##) (##.###,##)  (###,###) (##'###.##) etc
              a. What is the whole number separator (, . ' or space)
              b. What is the fraction designator (, .) sometime another character.
              c How many decimals in the fraction
              d. The name of the currency
       
      The ISO 639-1 
          1. The UNICODE necessary for the language.
          2. It will give you the name of the language
       
      Keep it simple:
          Only the Gregorianus calendar (ISO standard)
          Only the two letter code (UNICODE supports that)
          Only forward moving languages for now.
          
          Simple words in different languages:
              invalid month, day, hour, minute. second
              approximate cost in local currency
              actual cost in national currency
       
      Start at the top and work our way down the language codes:
      The parts of ISO 8859
      standardname of alphabetcharacterization
      ISO 8859-1Latin alphabet No. 1"Western", "West European"

        Hi,

        1) ISO 639-1 defines language codes, not "UNICODE".

        2) The set of ISO code pages does not cover all of the languages of the world...
        (no japan, china, etc.)

        3) I am not clear why you bring these up. There are other groups that talk about these encodings.
