Over the weekend I took a stab at rewriting the rather stale information 
we had in our language declaration tutorial and updated it to reflect 
the latest HTML5 thinking. Something I'd wanted to do for a while.

This is a similar exercise to the one I did on the character encoding 
tutorials and related articles.  It breaks out the real information into 
shorter articles and makes the tutorial a set of pointers - to increase 
usability and avoid repetition of material.  I also converted the markup 
to be html5 polyglot format. (There are few other template innovations.)

I basically rewrote all of the following articles (note that the 
interdependent links don't work because this is in a temporary location!)

Please take a look and send comments to this list. I'd like to send out 
for wide review and get these published in August.

Cheers,
