.bashrc for non-login shells, and .profile for login shells.
Joyride used to have a UI for changing localization, including UI and
keyboard. There are situations where I think the children should have
that facility, such as India, which has ten official writing systems
for more than 20 official languages, and more than 800 others. There
are also schools in California near where I live with several dozen
languages in use among students in bilingual classes. More than 60
languages in LA, I hear. (If you want your ear bent some time ^_^, ask
me about the Laotian community in Mount Shasta or the Uighurs in New
Jersey, or...Well, there's more if you care.)
