------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
   - '''A language/locale cannot perfectly represent orthography''': e.g. "zh-CN" does not stipulate if it's simplified or traditional Chinese. Locale for Yugoslavia does not provide guidance as to whether the language should be writeen in Latin or Cyrillic scripts. 
  
-  - '''Multiple cultural preferences within one locale''': e.g. In Japanese ("ja-JP"), there are two official date formats – Japanese emperor date (Wareki) and a standard numeric date format (Yoreki).
+  - '''Multiple cultural preferences within one locale''': e.g. In Japanese ("ja-JP"), there are two official date formats – Japanese emperor date (Wareki [ZZZ]) and a standard numeric date format (Yoreki [ZZZ]).
+ 
+ '''[[YS- Could someone put the Japanese for 'Wareki' and 'Yoreki' in the paragraph above (replacing the ZZZs). Thanks'''
  
   - '''Finer language variations''': e.g. how does one indicate that a voice track is in the language spoken in German-speaking Switzerland rather than the language written there, since one is Schwytzertuutsch (Swiss Germen) and the other is very close to but not the same as 'High German'?
