The language tag <kw> can be used to indicate that text is written in  
Cornish, for example in HTML documents.

Mechanisms exist for indicating that text is written in one or another  
orthography. As we have a number of these, perhaps a set of subtags  
would be useful. The form of the subtags is something that could use a  
little discussion.

The subtags must be between 5 and 8 characters in length.

UC: unyes (5), mordonek (8), coruc (5)
UCR: unysamd (8), golvanek (8), corucr (6), corur (5)
KK: kemmyn (6), corkk (5)
KS: standard (8), corks (5)
SWF/M: corswfm (7), corsm (5)
SWF/T: corswft (7), corst (5)

I have not attempted an analysis of the various orthographies of  
Gendall. Comment?
