Btw, in elements.html (section 3.2.3.3 The lang and xml:lang elements), the
text "if none of the ancestors" is presumably not exactly correct, and should
probably be changed to "if neither the node nor any of its ancestors".  (I'm
not sure that that suggested text is actually an improvement (given that the
intent should already clear from two paragraphs up, and given certain
conceivable misunderstandings of that suggested replacement text), though it is
displeasing that the existing text says something other than what's meant.)
