--- Comment #20 from Eliot Graff <eliotgra@microsoft.com> 2011-03-18 22:01:44 UTC ---
In the editpr's draft of 18 March, I rewrote the note in section 7.2 so that it
now reads:

]]
Whenever either the http-equiv="content-language" attribute on the <meta>
element or an HTTP Content-Language: header specifies the language of the root
element, then polyglot markup is required to specify the language mapping of
the root element. According to Content language state in [HTML5], the
http-equiv="content-language" attribute on the <meta> element specifices the
language of the root element whenever its content attribute contains no more
and no less than exactly one language tag. Therefore, not specifying the
language mapping of the root element would mean that HTML5 would interpret this
as setting the default language for the root element, while XML did not.
[[

I believe that takes care of this, though I wasn't totally certain about the
request here. Let me know if I've missed something. 

Thanks,

Eliot
