The convention wrt. using "tt" around the codes makes the tables look much neater, aligning the columns. The other alternative would be to use HTML tables, but they are really a pain to read/maintain as wiki-source. Egil 09:47 Feb 3, 2003 (UTC)

It would be nice to have the current two-letter codes together with the numeric codes (or 3-letter alpha codes) in the same table/list --- User:Docu

What about moving some content to ISO 3166-1? Because the country codes are not ISO 3166 but, ISO 3166-1.

an additional list[edit]

what about combining with

or adding native country names to ?

Dear Tangerines, Thank you for explaining the change to my contribution. I do have a question though, I'm hoping you can answer for me - the link I provided is to a publicly available database, a majority of the information is free to the public and relevant to the Wikipedia topic, so does it not qualify as appropriate subject matter to be included? Also I see another entry along similar lines just above my entry, which continues to remain in the topic. Thank you for taking the time to educate me on this.

Look at the search results for the topic.....[edit]

what about explaining the uses and purposes of granting a ISO 3166 code? from the outside it seems a completely superfluous activity. (talk) 11:14, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

More info can be found in ISO 3166-1. Chanheigeorge (talk) 17:08, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
