Notice that under Windows, a GetLocaleInfo call with the 0x414 and 0x814
LCIDs for the LOCALE_ISO3166CTRYNAME will return 'NO' in both cases
(LOCALE_ISO639LANGNAME will return 'no' in both cases).
This seems like a Windows bug if there are indeed ISO3166 tags that are

For all the Windows 2000-supported LCIDs, see
The list is now in ISO639/ISO3166 order.
