Invalid. "locale -a" shows what locales are available. The confusion is not with one user. It's with one user that produces document in one encoding and a second user that choses the wrong one (usually -1). -15 was designed to replace -1. OpenBSD removed ISO8859* completely. > >> Is the plan to keep every locale ever created for ever and ever? Never >> do any kind of kind of cleanup or reorg? > > It will be nice to do it that way.

Locales are not standardized with regard to encoding, so maintaining a museum of locales is specific to FreeBSD. Linux calls them differently.
