More consistent territory names for English

Reported by: mark Owned by: mark
Component: other Data Locale:
Phase: rc Review: fredrik
Weeks: Data Xpath:


It is important that territory names be as short as possible, thus we changed certain long names to have & and St., such as:

en.xml St. Vincent & Grenadines ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="VC"]

While we did this to many names, we didn't do it to all, giving an inconsistent appearance in a list. For consistency, we should make the same changes in the following:

en.xml	Antigua and Barbuda	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="AG"]
en.xml	Bosnia and Herzegovina	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="BA"]
en.xml	Ceuta and Melilla	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="EA"]
en.xml	Svalbard and Jan Mayen	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="SJ"]
en.xml	São Tomé and Príncipe	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="ST"]
en.xml	Turks and Caicos Islands	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="TC"]
en.xml	Trinidad and Tobago	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="TT"]
en.xml	Wallis and Futuna	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="WF"]

en.xml	Saint Kitts and Nevis	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="KN"]
en.xml	Saint Pierre and Miquelon	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="PM"]

en.xml	Saint Barthélemy	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="BL"]
en.xml	Saint Lucia	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="LC"]
en.xml	Saint Martin	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="MF"]
en.xml	Saint Helena	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="SH"]


en.xml	Antigua & Barbuda	//ldml/localeDisplayNames/territories/territory[@type="AG"]
