           Summary: Language tag sameness should probably be ASCII case-
                    insensitive
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Spec bugs

The sameness language in the spec for lang, xml:lang and the other xml:lang
requires exact sameness of the attribute value.

Since language tags are ASCII case-insensitive, the spec should probably be
relaxed to require ASCII case-insensitive sameness.
