I have never seen ie used as a language code under Linux systems, and it 
is interlingual, associated with unspecified territory code XX, so you 
would have to set each locale category separately to achieve the desired 
effects: fr_CH or en_US.

What does Cygwin show when you run the locale dump command I posted 
under a shell:

	$ for o in -s -u -i -n -f ''; do locale $o; done

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
