Facebook Connect Script Doesn't work for alternate site cultures

description

My facebook like box wasn't working, I noticed that the script was loading as it was returning a 403 error (unsure why). - http://connect.facebook.net/en_AU/all.js 403 (Forbidden)

I then noticed the "en_AU" which is the culture my site (was) set to, as soon as I changed my culture back to the default "en_US" it worked again.

This is something FB should really fix...

It seems Facebook happens no to support Australian locale (these are supported: http://www.facebook.com/translations/FacebookLocales.xml). I'll consider options to overcome this.

Well that is bizarre. Could possibly use the 'en_UK' locale (of whatever the British one is), as in terms of language it's exactly the same. The locales really only differ with currency, which isn't something which Facebook would need to consider at this point anyhow.

I would advice you to contact FB about that, since this is something they should care about.
