How about WOW! For instance, take a look at Top 100 Languages by Population [sil.org]. Now I know where Rencke spends his spare reading time.

Outstanding. How do you find this stuff, NFFC? One of these days, you'll have to come clean and let WebmasterWorld's readers in on the secret. Glad to see that my mother tongue made it to 89th place, just behind Bulgarian. Btw: it takes a lot more than IE5 to read

I thought that NFFC was the source of the Nile.

Danke sehr (bolshoya spacebo), NNFC.

That is a fab link.
I looked to see if Nenets was listed as a current language of Russia and there it was! Quite impressive!
