    I found nasty "documentation" bug;

    ms-help://MS.VSCC/MS.MSDNVS/cpref/html/frlrfsystemglobalizationcultureinfoclasstopic.htm

    claims that proper culture info name for Serbian (Cyrillic) - Serbia
    is "Cy-sr-SP" but if you try this, you will get "Culture name Cy-sr-SP
    is not supported" exception.

    If you set up culture info via
    System.Globalization.CultureInfo(0x081A) and than retrieve
    CultureInfo.Name you will get "sr-sp-Cyrl".

    Could someone make actions to correct this, either in documentation or
    in .Net framework.

    Thanks,
    Dejan

  2. This is a Doc bug and it has been fixed for VS.NET 2003 MSDN release.

    If you have it installed, it is at
    ms-help://MS.MSDNQTR.2003FEB.1033/cpref/html/frlrfSystemGlobalizationCulture
    InfoClassTopic.htm

    It is now:
    sr-SP-Cyrl 0x0C1A Serbian (Cyrillic) - Serbia
