Validator doesn't accept ISO 639 3-letter codes

See <URL: http://crism.maden.org/dunno.html >.  The CSS validator chokes on 
"got", which is the proper ISO 639 code for Gothic.

XML, Second Edition, noted that RFC 1766 only allows 2-letter codes as of 
XML2e's publication, but that its successor governs, and RFC 3066 is now 
out.  XML parsers should therefore accept 3-letter codes.  (The W3C XML 
validator doesn't complain about this, though it does choke on the Gothic 
characters because they are in the U+10000 range.)
