  '''[CL] I wonder if we should not simply point to [http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#sec-lang-tag] and the corresponding errata such as [http://www.w3.org/XML/xml-V10-3e-errata]. From my understanding, we should not reinvent the wheel, and I am under the impression that XML Core WG has created sth. normative.'''
  
+ '''[YS] Not sure if I understand the comment. Do you mean: a) we should not have this requirement because we can simply use xml:lang? Or: b) we should add the reference to xml:lang somewhere in this requirement (in the Notes for example)? I agree if it's b), but would disagree if it's a). I think the requirments should list all issues, even if we have already solutions for them. This way we can make sure we don't forget to mention such existing solutions in our guidelines, and the users will be able to see all i18n/l10n related info in one place.'''

  == Background ==
  
  Identifying languages (such as French and Spanish) and locales (such as Canadian French and Ecuadorian Spanish) are very important in rendering and processing document text and content properly since they provide specifications of hyphenation, text wrapping rules, color usage, fonts, spell checking quotation marks and other punctuation, etc.
