Better matching with regional variants

Reported by: mark Owned by: mark
Component: xxx-spec Data Locale:
Phase: final Review: pedberg
Weeks: Data Xpath:


The current spec has a problem with the following case.

When the user picks a regional variant they don't think to also pick the default. Yet while the user's information really doesn't tell us the priority ranking among their languages, normally the fall-off between the user's languages is substantially greater than regional variants.

Supported languages: "en-GB, en, de, fr, ja"

User's languages: "de-CH, fr"
This user would expect to get "de", not "fr"

User's language: "en-US, de"
This user would expect to get "en-GB", not "de"

Review note: Ended up making more extensive changes than anticipated, since the algorithm was very sketchily described. Please look it over.
