 Address in Taiwan (probably also in China) is reverse order:

 ((State, ZipCode, City),
  ("$¶l¬F«H½c", POBox, "$¸¹"),
  (Street, ExtendedAddress).

 Country is sort of weird in Taiwan
 because people don't write it locally.
 If it is international mail,
 people usually add it in the end of address as western style
 so that this mail can be send to the right country.
 In this case, the country tend to be in English rather than Chinese.

one more thing... I'm looking for postal address layouts for different countries for the next release of Contacts.app. The problem is that postal addresses are different for each country, so I represent them in property lists looking something like this:

(("$Postfach", POBox),
 (ZipCode, City),

Each sub-array is a line as it would appear on a letter. Entries starting with "$" are interpreted as literal strings, everything else is a key into the data base. The proplist above contains all the possible keys.

Please, could those who have a couple of free minutes hack something like this together for their countries? I have German, US and Romanian, and I need everything else.

Thanks a lot in advance,
