Hi!  I just want to correct what I said regarding Korean; while the subtag 
[kore] will be appropriate for a mixture of of both hangul and hanja it's not 
really the right subtag for pure hangul.
Normally you should be fine with [kore] but there are times when you might want 
to indentify a hangul only script.
This might happen when you are trying to translate for a specific geographic 
area rather than into a standardized version of a language (although I do not 
think it would be a good idea to translte into anything but a standard variant 
of these languages except say, if you are translating documents into a language 
as it is spoken where a conference is being hosted).
