    The name should be the code for the language in lowercase followed by the
    name of the country or other locale code if any in caps. Thus for Sardinian
    spoken in Italy, it should be sc-IT or srd-IT. As all the languages in
    Abiword except Lojban have two-letter codes, I think we should use sc-IT. The
    codes are listed at .

    Some codes are vague and can stand for any of several languages. In this
    case, the vague code is followed by the name of the language in lowercase.
    Thus the language of the Motilones would be coded as sai-bari-CO or
    sai-bari-VE (Barí is what they call themselves).
