It appears that bug 1183 [1] was resolved such that *both* the xhtml: lang
and the html lang attributes must be used. It also says to follow the advice
on authoring techniques for xhtml [2] which says to use the html lang
*and/or* the xml: lang".

Do we need both the HTML lang attribute and the xml:lang attribute to
fulfill the WCAG requirement?

example: <html xml:lang="en" lang="en">
