There is an error in the table of language codes page at
"Language Codes: ISO 639, Microsoft and Macintosh"
In the table the "Bhutani" language is incorrectly associated with the
ISO 639 code "dz"
dz is the language code for "Dzongkha" - the national language of Bhutan
*not* for the unrelated Bhutani language. This mix-up is a fairly
common error found in various unofficial lists of ISO 639 codes on the
"Bhutani" is the name of a tribe or ethnic group originally from
Southern Balochistan, Pakistan and their language. This is completely
unrelated to Bhutan or to the Dzongkha language. (The ISO 639-3 code for
the Bhutani or Southern Balochi language is bcc.)
Please see: <http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/code_list.php>
for the *official* list of ISO 639-2 codes maintained by the Library of
Congress. There you will see that "dz" is the code for Dzongkha.
