en_DK is truly the greatest locale out there.

For those who haven't heard of en_DK before, it's the "European English" (for want of a better description) locale.

It uses Commonwealth English (en_GB) for strings and ISO-14651-1 for collates.
Dates are in YYYY-MM-DD, time is in 24h HH:MM format, Monday is the first day of the week, comma is the decimal separator, currency is euro and standard paper size is A4.

@erkin Sadly not available almost everywhere I have searched for it. Are you sure about the euro? (Couldn't test due to lack of that particular locale on my systems)


@saper Yeah, it's absent from BSDs for some reason. IIRC it's in FreeBSD ports.

I just checked and you're right, it uses Danish krone.
