Hi

> names of countries and their subdivisions

yes, clearly.

the original question was, yesterday, where
to get a list of countries for a 'person' fill-out form,
for example, for posting and packaging, i assume.

All national postal organizations in the world exchange international
mail between them in containers carrying ISO 3166-1 codes

In machine-readable passports the three letter code of ISO 3166-1 is
used to determine the nationality of the user (ISO/IEC 7501-1)

Currencies are identified by a code based on the ISO 3166-1 which
identifies them in international transactions (ISO 4217)

The Internet domain name sytems uses ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes to define
country-coded Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

etc,etc.

so I still think ISO 3166 is the best list for the job :)

$3c and rising,
*pike
