This is a consequence of using the template at  
http://csswg.inkedblade.net/test/css2.1/format. The tests will  
automatically be converted to HTML format. If you check META name="flags"  
in the tests, you will (hopefully!) find that the tests that use the lang  
attribute are flagged as "HTMLonly". If you find the lang attribute in  
tests not flagged as HTMLonly, please let me know.

Normally I wouldn't include it, but I've been following the template given  
at http://csswg.inkedblade.net/test/css2.1/format

Should the template be changed?
