I was thinking the same. But Bob's reply has me wondering if there are 
any online resources for this sort of thing. Specifically, i have a 
look-up table, with most (possibly all - i don't know) countries' 
2-letter ISO codes and english names. Just this weekend, i've learned 
that i'll require the names in french, as well. I'd thought about 
feeding the names to Babelfish, but, if such a list exists somewhere 
that'd be a real time saver.

I have a list of Canadian provinces, in both official languages, to swap 
(w00t!).
