It is not obtained from Regional Settings. It is obtained from an
IE-specific setting located in Options > Languages... Note that with IE6,
the script runonce.asp that is ran whenever you update Windows (IE) will ask
you for a country and a language, and set the setting. I do not know what
happens when you select a country and language that makes up an invalid
locale (e.g. United States, Chinese).
