ISO updates[edit]

The ISO list is changed regularly, last years in June and December. Current list is completed As of 9 August 2011. This list has 160 defined codes (code, number, script name).

Note: when resolving red links or wrong links, edit {{ISO 15924/wp-name}} or {{ISO 15924/wp-category}}. That is where the connection between ISO code and Wikipedia names is made.

We here at Wikipedia do not and can not decide over ISO 15924. End of story.
