  === When to use ''xml:lang'' ===
  
- XML 1.0 defines a common attribute ''xml:lang'' which indicates the natural language of the content of an element using the language tags defined by RFC 3066 or its successor. That is, the ''xml:lang'' identifies the language of text or other content (including embedded objects such as an image or sound file) contained by the element. The ''xml:lang'' value applies to any sub-elements contained by the element. Attribute values associated with the element and its descendant elements also are associated with the ''xml:lang'' (though using natural language in attributes is '''not''' best practice). Thus ''xml:lang'' is used to indicate the language of some content in or referenced by an XML document.
