In a post about Cantonese Language tags, I mentioned ISO-639-3 language codes. This is a new series of codes developed by the linguistic organization SIL which attempts to cover a broader spectrum of languages than had been named in previous registries.
Although I recommend these codes for anyone working with linguistic information, it should be noted that they are being revised. The latest set of changes are announced on the ISO-639-3 home page. You should check these pages out when determining which codes to use.
