Hi Felix,

Wouldn't xml:lang be upgraded at some point to use RFC-3066 bis?

Subject: On language tags

Hi Yves, all,

Currently the language tags are only in the techniques document, and we refer to xml:lang. I am just wondering if we should consider
a language attribute for the tagset document (not deciding yet whether for the last call or not), to be able to use RFC 3066 bis.
This new RFC for language tags is much more powerful than the RFC 3066 (which is the basis for xml:lang).

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Felix
