Hm, I wonder what user base does the Latin* names serve, maybe use the
less formal and human friendlier names (eg. "North European") everywhere
where available?  For example http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8859
contains a list; I don't know if there's an official one available
somewhere.

Also, /me wonders why the human friendly description is part of the
option _values_ in the result form's select box?
