>Which culture do you need specifically ?

Our product is for minority languages, many of them "endangered", few of
which are in the ICU database. There some 6000 languages in the world, and
most of these languages need, for example, small sort-order tailorings.

The One Laptop Per Child project may be ushering Linux into many of these
language communities for the first time.

It looks like we'll have to wrap the ICU library ourselves and can't use the
mono code for our globalization.  Sigh. Thanks for the prompt information,

John Hatton
