correct, but i assumed it was a US site, which is why i said 'en-
us'... but i didn't mean US english was a standard, but that 'en-us' 
is a standard way of describing the language for US english... dig?

in which case it would be 'en-gn' (i think)... either way, read up on 
the standards and choose a standard abbreviation for the language, 
no matter what it is...

i believe if you read through both W3C specs and the WAI 
guidelines, they'll push you toward something more specific than 
'en'... at least that's why i use 'en-us' over 'en'...
