    RFC 2482, "Language Tagging in Unicode Plain Text", describes a
    mechanism for using special Unicode language tag characters to
    identify languages when needed without more general markup such as
    that provided by XML. The Unicode Consortium has deprecated that
    facility and strongly recommends against its use. RFC 2482 has been
    moved to Historic status to reduce the possibility that Internet
    implementers would consider that system an appropriate mechanism for
    identifying languages. This document is not an Internet Standards Track
    specification; it is published for informational purposes.
