The Library of Congress, the registration authority for
ISO 639-2 (3-letter language codes) has put up some
very useful pages:

>The ISO 639-2 standard is at the official ISO 639-2/RA Web site:
>The tables arranged by ISO 639-2 code include the ISO 639-1 code as well:
>(arranged by ISO 639-2/T (terminology) code)
>(arranged by ISO 639-2/B (bibliographic) code)
>For further information see the ISO 639-2/RA home page:

Changes to ISO 639 and ISO 639-2:

Please note that currently, only two-letter codes should
be used in HTML, HTTP, and XML. To be able to use three-
letter codes, these standards have to be updated.

I have updated the W3C page on language codes at
to point to these resources.

Regards,   Martin.
