Catalog updates

I'm in the process of cleaning up a lot of catalog entries, doing things like adding Subject Languages and Linguistic Type. All values of "Subject" have been migrated to corresponding "LingType" values. LingType will now supersede Subject in the record entry and "Subject" can be ignored.

Made a few other improvements to the interface. The list of languages in the search page is now reduced to Alaskan langs. Once all resources are coded for language we will be able to use this to generate container lists by language rather than relying on the Identifier code. This is critical, because the ANLC numbers are not captured by 2-3 letter code. Also, some languages have more than one code (e.g., Alutiiq is both SU and AS).
