Spot on, Tony. The only other logical thing to try is to look through the
headers at what the *browser* reports as its language and country, GB-EN, or
US-EN, etc. The last time I tried these (2001) they were remarkably
inaccurate, giving an accuracy of, say, 80% at best. This may however be
accurate enough for your purposes. Guess lots of people just install windows
with defaults i.e. US English!
