Language goes first, so es_MX. Take RedHat Linux 5.1 and English. There are
several language files for en_GB, en_US, en_CA, en_IE, en_DK, and (my
favourite ;) en_RN. The first four are easy, this is ISO country code. If
fifth is also ISO does it mean English from Denmark[1]? Sixth is just an
English as used by Rednecks ;)
