Sometimes languages are changed mid-cue and need a different font loaded. This
can happen automatically if the language is marked up. Mixed language cues
should be supported. This means we need a means for inline language markup.

The following approach was suggested by Ian in
http://lists.whatwg.org/htdig.cgi/whatwg-whatwg.org/2011-December/034013.html :


  WEBVTT

  cue id
  00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:01.000
  <lang en>cue text says <lang fr>bonjour</lang></lang>


It would probably translate to <span lang="xx"></span> in HTML.
