CLDR Ticket #10777(accepted spec)

Really document diff between defaultContent, likelySubtags, &locale-matching

Reported by: mark Owned by: mark

Phase: spec-beta Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


There is a significant difference among each of the following:

  1. inheritance in CLDR (which can be pragmatic, to get the easiest way to share data) [defaultContent]
  2. addLikelySubtag, which gives you the most likely full subtag in the absence of other information [likelySubtags.xml]
  3. LocaleMatcher data, which provides the best match for the user's language(s) in an application's supported languages. [languageInfo.xml]

It is important that implementations of CLDR clearly understand the difference and make it clear to their users, but it is a bit tricky to dig that out of the spec.

Maybe an FAQ??
