[I'm currently trying to spend time with my family, so I am not planning to
read this thread in detail until after Easter, but I scanned it and saw the
request for tests.]

We have a bunch of tests at http://www.w3.org/International/tests and indeed
there are some tests related to this topic, with some results dating from
browser versions that were around in the middle of last year:

http://www.w3.org/International/tests/list-html-css#langdecl

For the results, see here (particularly the section, Declarations containing
multiple languages):

ions/results-language-declarations

Hope that helps,
RI
