In February, the ISO 639 committee approved the language code "tlh" for Klingon
(see URL given for code change notice). This should be added to Mozilla's
knowledge of the ISO 639 code at some point. Klingon makes a nice demo of the
capability of a browser to deal with tagged multilingual content; besides, there
certainly are pages out there in Klingon.

This can be done by adding the line

tlh = Klingon

to languageNames.properties in both the places it occurs in seamonkey
(mozilla/xpfe/global/resources/locale/en-US/ languageNames.properties and
mozilla/toolkit/locale/languageNames.properties ).

This is nowhere near anything like approaching urgent.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Can you give some example URIs of pages in Klingon? I assume (and hope) that you
are referring to Klingon in Latin script. See
http://eikenes.alvestrand.no/pipermail/ietf-languages/2004-February/001735.html
and other messages in the thread.
Sure. Wikipedia has some pages in Klingon which use "tlh" for the language code,
for example:

Why don't you add it to toolkit/locale/languageNames.properties
as well? In addition, 'tlh' has to be added to
intl/locale/src/languages.properties. And perhaps,  'tlh' has to be mapped to
'x-western' (for now) in 'langGroups.properties' 
Apologies for that too hasty patch last night. This one should be better.

By the way, in case anyone else tries to test putting Klingon at the top of
their Accept-Language header and going to Google, there is a bug in Google's
content negotiation (mentioned already in bug 208277 comment 4) which will make
the results come out in Tagalog.

Roc, can you sr? Will you give blanket rs for adding new language codes that
get added to ISO-639 from time to time?
