Dear H=E5vard,
=20
Before informing Mr. Urgicic of any decision by the RA, please would you =
inform Mr. Bryden of the decision you wish to take and please explain =
the basis of the decision. Please note that in ISO 639-2 it states:

	"Criteria for selecting the form of a language code for code set B were

	- preference of the countries using the language,

	- established usage of codes in national and international =
bibliographic databases, and

	- the vernacular or English form of the language..."

and furthermore it would seem to fall in the category of a compelling =
reason as stated in ISO 639-2:1998, 4.1:

	 "To ensure continuity and stability, codes shall only be changed for =
compelling reasons."

=09

Best regards,

Mary Lou

Dear H=E5vard,
=20
Mr. Bryden received the attached official request from the National =
Libraries in Serbia during his visit to Serbia last week. Mr. Ugricic, =
Director on the National Library of Serbia, requests that the =
bibliographic language codes for Serbian and Croatian languages as =
specified in ISO 639-2 be aligned with those used for terminological =
purposes. Please would you follow up on this request and inform Mr. =
Ugricic (business card attached) as well as ourselves of any decision =
taken.

Many thanks  for your help in this matter.
