Dave Cragg - I stand corrected:

British English

?????????

However, when I initially installed Mac OS 10.1 on
this machine & subsequently upgraded all the way to
10.4 the installed language was US English - I
understood that the other 2 (although who thinks that
US English and British English are separate languages
escapes me - dialects surely) were added later.

I also find the use of double quotes a bit odd, as if
there is some sort of difference between "en-GB" and
simple bg. I wonder if a 'pure' US system install
returns "en-US" or just en. And, is this all part of
that hairy-chested nonsense that has been going on on
both sides of the Atlantic since the "American
Colonies" did the sensible thing?

sincerely, Richmond Mathewson
