It doesn't seem to work for me. My /etc/locale.gen includes:
If I do "LANG=fr_FR ls --help", I get the French help text; if I do
"LANG=fr_FR.ISO-8859-1 ls --help", the messages come out in English.
Conversely, "de_DE" gives me English and "de_DE.ISO-8859-1" gives me
So it seems that an exact match is required. I admit this is scarcely
an exhaustive test, though.
