They are not listed in the HTML page on Michael Everson's site, which
claims to be "complete and up-to-date as of 2000-02-19." But they are
listed in a text file, "Technical contents of ISO 639:1988," originally
typed by Keld Simonsen, wich I had ignored in favor of the version on
Everson's site.

Thank you for the correction.
