This is the discussion thread for Issue #14, part of our issues list [1]

Issue #14 can be found at:
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/BestPractices/HTML/2005-current-issues#xml- 
lang

The issue is that, for XML literals, the xml:lang property of the  
entire literal is lost. This is probably a bad thing, given how much  
XHTML2 depends on its xml:lang (after all, it is user-rendered  
content.) There is, however, no simple way to capture this xml:lang  
(that could be inherited from a distant parent.)

Jeremy has proposed inserting a wrapper <div> or <span>, as  
appropriate, to carry the xml:lang.

Thoughts?
