This actually comes from  from Internet Explorer, so may not exist
on all systems (e.g., wine), but does have the advantage of following
a standard other than Microsoft.

There is also the Microsoft way:

has a table for HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/International/Locale
My linux PC has 409=en-US on wine.  The table offers:

identifier 	Locale 	                              Locale name  Script
tag   ANSI code page
0x0c04 	Chinese (Hong Kong SAR, PRC) 	zh-HK 	Hant 	       950
0x1404 	Windows 98/Me, Windows XP
                and later: Chinese (Macao SAR) 	zh-MO 	Hant 	       950
0x0804 	Chinese (PRC)                          	zh-CN 	Hans       936
0x1004 	Chinese (Singapore)                         zh-SG 	Hans       936
0x0404 	Chinese (Taiwan)                               zh-TW 	Hant 	       950
