(In reply to comment #6)
The HTMLwg just decided that http-equiv="Content-Language" should be illegal.

As a result, here is and amandment of the current text. I tried to make it
shorter too.


]]
6.5.1.1 Content-Language

 The HTTP Content-Language: header warrants special discussion in polyglot
markup. 

Example
HTTP header: Content-language: ru

 Whenever there is a HTTP Content-Language: header whose value is no more and
no less than exactly  one language tag, polyglot markup must declare the lang
and the xml:lang attribute on the root element to avoid a difference between
HTML and XML in regard to whether the HTTP Content-Language: header, in the
absense of lang and xml:lang,  sets a fallback language or not.

Note
 For the sake of simplicity and expediency, content to be delivered as polyglot
markup may always include both the xml:lang as well as the lang attributes on
the root element.
