Added the following to the polyglot spec as of the 14 MArch Editor's Draft:

]]
6.5.1 HTTP Headers and http-equiv Declarations

 The following HTTP headers and http-equiv declarations warrant special
discussion in polyglot markup. 
Example
  http-equiv: <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="ru"/>
  HTTP header: Content-language: ru

6.5.1.1 Content-Language

 There are no direct issues with regard to the use of Content-Language as long
as the language attribute is declared on the root element, as described in
Language Attributes. By declaring the language attribute on the root element,
polyglot markup avoids the differences between XML and HTML in regard to
Content-Language. 


6.5.1.2 Content-Type

 The HTTP Content-Type: header has no extra rules or restrictions, whereas
polyglot markup does not use the http-equiv="Content-Type" declaration on the
<meta> element. For more specific information about using the HTTP
Content-Type: header, see Specifying a Document's Character Encoding.
[[

I believe that this satisfies the request in this bug, so I am resolving it as
fixed. However, you beg a question in 6.5.1.1. Do you want to explain the
differences between HTML and XML in regard to Content-Language?

]]
By declaring the language attribute on the root element, polyglot markup avoids
the differences between XML and HTML in regard to Content-Language. 
[[

If so, please reopen the bug with proposed text. I think it's probably enough
to say there are differences, but if you want to be specific, I'll respect
that.

Thanks,

Eliot
