US states and world countries selectors

Hello all!

I was just wondering, I need to build a signup form with US states and also world countries selector. Is there already a helper os something that implements or makes it easier to implement this for Rails (Rails is making me lazy!).

Btw, where could I get a list of world countries and US states? Is there any webservice for that ? Or just copy and paste from somewhere else?

Thanks in advance,

Marcelo.

Google for the ISO standard 3166 - that's the official list of country codes.
ISO639 is the list of language codes, both 2-character and 3-character versions,
depending on the revision of the standard. Both are covered in the IETF's
adaptations in RFC 3066, but check the ISO standards first.
