de,at as such doesn't make sense, because at isn't a language
subtag (see http://www.iana.org/assignments/language-subtag-registry;
caution: long file). What was meant must be either de-at
(German, as used in Austria), or de, de-at (German as well
as German as used in Austria) or something similar.
