And just to beat this topic a little further into the ground:

'011' - prefix for direct-dial international dialing

'010' - prefix for operator-assisted international dialing

Yes, because the last digit follows the same convention used to dial long distance here in the U.S.

I suppose technically the code "01" is really the international dialing code, followed by the standard direct or assisted code, 1 or 0.

Hmmm .. interesting. Can't think of the last time I dialed a long distance number with operator assistance -- 0 - area code - telephone #. Guess it was a long time ago -- probably in college when I was reversing the charges!
