Chris, this looks OK to me.  One suggestion:
For XHTML documents served as text/html that *do* have both required
attributes (lang and xml:lang), check to see if the value oflang= and
xml:lang= are the *same* valid language code.

I'm not sure what would happen if they were different, but I bet it's
not pretty.

I've modified test 49 to make it clear how you check for the proper lang

Please take a look and let me know if this make sense to you:
