Name: RFC3066
Label: RFC 3066
Definition: Internet RFC 3066 'Tags for the Identification of 
                Languages' specifies a primary subtag which
                is a two-letter code taken from ISO 639 part
                1 or a three-letter code taken from ISO 639
                part 2, followed optionally by a two-letter
                country code taken from ISO 3166. When a
                language in ISO 639 has both a two-letter and
                three-letter code, use the two-letter code;
                when it has only a three-letter code, use the
                three-letter code. This RFC replaces RFC
                1766.
