Country codes for Jersey, Guernsey & Isle of Man added

It seems that the UK Department of Trade & Industry has convinced the ISO to add the codes for Guernsey (GE), Jersey (JE) and Isle of Man (IM) to the official ISO 3166-1 country database.

This is the database often used to populate the drop-down lists of countries seen when shopping on-line.

As a result we should now be able to pick where we live instead of UK and subsequently not find ourselves paying another countries VAT/sales tax.
