Change references to RFC 3066 to BCP 47[edit]

Hello, in the line:

 "See note in RFC 3066 section 2.3 Choice of language tag:" 

the reference here to RFC 3066 should probably be changed to reference BCP 47

BCP 47 Obsoletes RFC 3066.

The quote is not in the current BCP 47 (= RFC 4646 + RFC 4647), so we have to quote RFC 3066. (But the quote is from ISO, and quoting it via an RFC looks a bit strange - it would be best if we could find the original ISO document and quote it directly.) --Zundark 21:51, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
On closer inspection, I see that RFC 4646 does have a similar quote from ISO, and gives its source. So I've changed the article to refer directly to this source (ISO 639 Joint Advisory Committee: Working principles for ISO 639 maintenance, on the ISO 639-2/RA website). --Zundark 09:17, 13 March 2007 (UTC)


Just out of curiosity...[edit]

Is there any known figure regarding the percentage of world languages that have been designated with an ISO 639-1 code? ~ Skyscraper (talk) 18:26, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Broken Link in Reference[edit]

I removed the following reference as the link is broken. (Source: Main page content)
