CLDR Ticket #9669(accepted spec)
Spec: context of "locale"
|Reported by:||srl||Owned by:||srl|
Zibi (on cc) asked a great question which led me to another question. The original question was:
- Q1: What locale keywords affect List formatters?
- Q2: What locale keywords affect Plural rules?
- A1: List formatters are main locale data based, so it would seem no keyword is required.
- A2: Plural rules are supplemental, keyed by locale.
The locale list in the plural rules doesn't say anything specifically about keywords. Should it?
http://www.unicode.org/repos/cldr/trunk/specs/ldml/tr35.html#Key_And_Type_Definitions_ has a list of keys and types, and back links to other parts of the spec. But there wasn't an easy way to answer the question, generally speaking.
