The CultureInfo to use for text formatting.

The CultureInfo class holds culture-specific information, such as the associated language, sublanguage, country/region, calendar, and cultural conventions. This class also provides access to culture-specific instances of DateTimeFormatInfo, NumberFormatInfo, CompareInfo, and TextInfo. These objects contain the information required for culture-specific operations, such as casing, formatting dates and numbers, and comparing strings.

This method sets the culture information value for the entire text string. To set the culture information value for a subset of the text string, use the SetCulture(CultureInfo, Int32, Int32) method.
