I am from Taiwan. I'm runnung an English version of WindowsXP and set
the default charset to Big5(zh-tw).
The question is the first time when I link to http://www.google.com">www.google.com, Google
can determine that I'm using big5 and locate me on http://www.google.com">www.google.com.tw.
At first I thought it determined form $_SERVER["HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE"],
but read through the $_SERVER array, there's nothing about "zh-tw" or
"big5". Does anyone know how Google do that?

Re: Language of client
Likely from Accept-Language (RFC2616 sec. 14.4).
Google does make use of Accept-Language to decide the
language of your interface.
Maybe you unwittingly set preferences. They don't know what
you haven't told them, but they might remember things you
told them in the past.
