Updated article: Setting language preferences in a browser

Link to article

This article was largely rewritten. The background information was made more accessible to a general user. A command path was added for IE7. The text about specifying alternative language preferences was expanded, and instructions were added to describe how to create custom tags by finding values in the IANA Language subtag registry. The case of Chinese is discussed in detail, and a section was added about IE7’s defaults, with a suggestion that users add an additional language setting.

Please send any comments on the new text to www-international.

The Spanish, Polish and Portuguese translators should consider retranslating the whole article.
