No problem!

I didn't want to be a pain, bringing it up so often.

>From the exmaple I gave in one of my previous emails:

  Link: <essay.en>; rel="alternate"; hreflang="en"; lang="en"; title="Essay"
  Link: <essay.fr>; rel="alternate"; hreflang="fr"; lang="fr"; title="Essais"
  Link: <essay.de>; rel="alternate"; hreflang="de"; lang="de"; title="Aufsatz"

The lang parameter pertains to the content of the link title parameter:

  Essay, Essais, or Aufsatz

Which is directly analogous to the HTML version:

  <link rel="alternate" href="essay.en" hreflang="en" lang="en" title="Essay">
  <link rel="alternate" href="essay.fr" hreflang="fr" lang="fr" title="Essais">
  <link rel="alternate" href="essay.de" hreflang="de" lang="de" title="Aufsatz">

A friend of mine points out that it should be Essai, but oh well.

Thank you for considering my feedback!
