If you are creating some_doc.html.en-us, it better be US English.  If you are
creating some_docs.html.en-gb (or uk, which is it these days?) then it's better
be the Queen's English.

Now, all other en-foo variants that we don't specifically support will fall 
out in the wash to .html.en.  Which way does the majority of the rest of the
English speaking world spell?

Should be simple enough to choose one, and create the other in a perl script.
