RFC 2482, "Language Tagging in Unicode Plain Text", describes a
mechanism for using special Unicode language tag characters to
identify languages when needed without more general markup such as
that provided by XML.  The Unicode Consortium has deprecated that
facility and strongly recommends against its use.  RFC 2482 has been
moved to Historic status to reduce the possibility that Internet
implementers would consider that system an appropriate mechanism for
identifying languages.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
