native-language v. English-language names in WebUIs

I'm looking for a list of languages written using their native
script/character set.  Something like this, but with the native-script
version too:


Do we have such a list?  Anyone know where I can find one?

== Background ==

Working through a bug[1] about language names on the Fedora 10 release
notes pages:


Initially we just displayed the language code, which people complained
was hard to understand.  We used to use the actual language name in
native language and character set:


People complained about that, too, because of strange HEX blocks they
saw when they did not have the character set installed.

I thought that for a long list, we could do a combination:

  Language ([English word for language], [lang code])
Such as:

Español (Spanish, es)
日本語 (Japanese, ja)
Ελληνικά (Greek, el)
