yes, it did...
is there any timetable for implementing this RFC for locale tags?
I just read the rfc4646bis-02... may I assume that this is the latest
revision of the rfc?
According to this the following should be approriate:
zh-nan-Latn-TW (Minnan using Latin script in Taiwan, aka. POJ)
zh-nan-Hant-TW (Minnan using traditional Hanzi in Taiwan)
zh-hak-TW (Hakka in Taiwan)
i-ami-TW (Amis in Taiwan)
Would that be correct?
Thanks for all the answers so far. :)
