Comment 1 Martin Welss 2005-05-03 13:13:48 UTC
the correct format of the locale is: en_US.ISO-8859-15

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-05-03 13:40:30 UTC
en_EN is an invalid locale, which is why it isn't supported.  It's not
supported by glibc either for the same reason (according to our glibc

You're probably looking for "en_GB" and "en_GB.ISO-8859-15" which are
both valid.

Setting status to NOTABUG (bogus locale)

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2005-05-03 13:45:12 UTC
Additional note:

The submitted bug Summary and the first comment describe 2 completely
different locales.  The one in the summary 'en_US.ISO-8859-15' is
formatted incorrectly, it should be "en_US.ISO8859-15" which is valid
and should work correctly.  en_EN is completely invalid however.

Comment 4 Martin Welss 2005-05-03 13:55:33 UTC
Yes, en_US.ISO8859-15 works just fine. Sorry for the confusion.
