Joe Bowser updated CB-4602:

No problem.  BTW: If it's inconsistent, it's a bug, not an improvement.

> "Returns the language identifier string to the successCallback with a properties object
as a parameter. That object should have a value property with a String value."
> navigator.globalization.getPreferredLanguage(
>    function (language) {alert('language: ' + language.value + '\n');},
>    function () {alert('Error getting language\n');}
> );
> On Android the function doesn't seem to return an identifier as such, it returns *a string
describing the language localised to that language*, e.g. "English" for English or "中文"
for Japanese. Naturally this is less than ideal for subsequent string operations, furthermore
on that page "Windows Phone 8 Quirks - Returns the ISO 639-1 two-letter code for the current
language" which is an identifier, and also what I would expect (or an ISO 639-2 code, as per
http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/code_list.php)
> Android seems to support 639-2 http://developer.android.com/reference/java/util/Locale.html#getISO3Language()
> I have no idea what it returns on other platforms, but to keep client code consistent
I guess it would good if this could be normalised in the API.
> Have tested this on v3.0 and 2.6, is the same.
> As an aside, the locale is not really what I want here, as the user may be in the US
but have Japanese as their preferred language.
