ISO 3166 Standard for United Kingdom  XML

Hi there.

I try to combine several services on the web, and I was happy to see that the geonames web services use the ISO 3166 standard for country codes. Now, according to the website of iso.org (link below), the country code for United Kingdom should be 'GB', but the search service returned me 'UK'. Can this be fixed please?

Hi Kevin

I think this is an important question and have raised it with the geonames mailing list :

http://groups.google.com/group/geonames/browse_frm/thread/4e348e74a0088646/366094ac0cb15d34#366094ac0cb15d34

If no objections are voiced I will change it to GB these days.

Regards

Marc
