Hi Richard,
only a note.


for this:
http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/tech-lang.html#ri20040429.092928424

For HTML use the lang attribute only, for XHTML 1.0 served as text/html use 
the lang and xml:lang attributes, and for XHTML served as XML use the 
xml:lang attribute only.


I suggest also to put a reference to the official  XHTML 1.0 SE spec.
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#C_7

Use both the lang and xml:lang attributes when specifying the language of an 
element. The value of the xml:lang attribute takes precedence.

Chaps,

I worked some more on the document

Internationalization Best Practices: Specifying Language in XHTML & HTML 
Content
http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/tech-lang.html

and its related tests and results pages, over the past week, and I think it 
is ready for publication as a WG Note.  The decision to publish will now 
have to be taken by the recharted Core WG, but please could you take a look 
at this before the telecon tomorrow and let me know whether you are in 
agreement that it can be published?

Thanks,
RI
