By the way, I recently discovered that there is now a single IANA
registry of language codes so we no longer need to worry about looking
in the 2-letter list, and then if we don't find what we're looking for
move on to the 3-letter list. Instead, all codes, both 2- and
(occasional) 3-letter (and 4-letter script codes) are listed on a single
page at <http://www.iana.org/assignments/language-subtag-registry>, so
there is no longer any danger of accidentally using a 3-digit code that
has been deprecated in favour of its 2-digit replacement.
(For example, "Ancient Greek (to 1453)" is now unambiguously listed as
"grc", so should not be confused with "el".)
I've found this very helpful while trying to decide how to tag Nabatean
script in papyri...
