ISO 639-2 is an International Standard which specifies a three-letter code
to identify languages. I just checked, and there is no code for Sign
Language. I think there should be.

Accordingly, I have prepared a web page outlining how Sign Language could
be coded using ISO 639-2 and ISO 3166 (country codes). Please see
http://www.indigo.ie/egt/standards/iso639/deaf.html

There is a procedure to follow for applying for a code but of course I'll
need the Deaf community's blessing on the plan before doing so.
