Seems it's not really as easy as all that.


Clearly lists CA ad the ISO abbreviation of Canada. But if
I remember correctly there are separate two-letter and
three-letter country codes.

Granted, in terms of North American adresses, I associate
two-letter abbreviations with province/state so CA would
be California. But if the entry

I figure CA is perfectly acceptable as long as it's
clearly in a Country field.

I suppose like much else in technical writing, choose your
standard/style and be consistent. ;)
