Re: [FWD:] The locale name of Taiwan

Hello Ming-Che,

> 刚刚查一下 X/Open 的规定  zh_TW 还是给 CNS 用

Mr. Hsieh forward your email to debian list. Would you like to point out
what exact X/Open specification you were referring to? X/Open has disappeared
for many years (merged into open group). Probably the only X/Open standard
still can be heard today is XPG4. I seems could not find what you mentioned.
Nor can I find it in XPG4's successors, Unix95 and Unix98 standards, published
by open group.

Calm down, no one is taking away the CNS. It's installed by default, in
zh_TW.euctw. Only need to add one alias in X to make Xlocale working.

Do you mean charmap file format? It's POSIX conforming, but more restrictive
in that symbolic name must be in Unicode form since glibc get rid of 
repertoire files.
