      outputBlock.Text += " CULTURE    PROPERTY VALUE" + "\n";
      PrintPattern(outputBlock, "en-US");
      PrintPattern(outputBlock, "ar-EG");
      PrintPattern(outputBlock, "fr-FR");
   }

   public static void PrintPattern(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, String myCulture)
   {
      DateTimeFormatInfo myDTFI = new CultureInfo(myCulture).DateTimeFormat;
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("  {0}     {1}", myCulture, myDTFI.LongTimePattern) + "\n";
   }
}
