Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: Language codes with countries

/ Elliotte Rusty Harold <elharo@metalab.unc.edu> was heard to say:
| p. 120 of the Docbook book gives en_US as an example of an ISO 3166
| country code for the lang attribute. However, these are normally
| written using hyphens rather than underscores; e.g. en-US. Which is
| correct for Docbook?

The ISO 3166 reference should be normative on this. Hyphen is correct.
(Both the DSSSL and XSL stylesheets handle both.)

                                        Be seeing you,
