[Mono-devel-list] CultureInfo

Hi all,

After talking to Miguel & Gonzalo on irc, I've started to look in detail
at System.Globalization.CultureInfo.

I've written some dumping code that outputs things like names, ISO codes
and calendar type for each 'culture'. I've verified that it works with
the Microsoft runtime and not mono, (for obvious reasons).

The nicest way to implement some properties on CultureInfo like
EnglishName and DisplayName (the latter should appear in a local
language), seems to be with text resource files that get compiled into
corlib at build time.

I'm a bit of a .NET newbie, but it looks like to do this, we'll need a
'resgen' tool. Does mono have one of these and/or is there a workaround
for translatable string tables?
