Is this overseas region going to be split into two departments? Passer-by 12:47, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Using the infobox for French régions is inappropriate for the overseas départements/régions like Réunion, as there are certain characteristics that make them different from régions in metropolitan France.

Is the international dialling code +33, the same as metropolitan France? No, each overseas région has a separate code, even though you need only dial the number for calls to and from metropolitan France. Is the time zone the same? No. This information is relevant and should be included in a separate infobox. Failing that, it should be included in the existing infobox. Quiensabe 15:41, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
