Hi.
I'm accessing a page which is primarily in English but which may have
some Irish and potentially other languages in it. Obviously in this
case I would want to mark this change in language e.g.

<p>And english paragraph with some words <span xml:lang="ga"
lang="ga">as gaeilge</span></p>

Easy enough so far, but I have a bilingual image, which contains text
(that it contains text at all is out of my hands for present), in
both Irish and English. I want to reflect both in the alt text e.g.:
<img src="whatever.gif" alt="As Gaeilge - In English" />

I would like to mark this as bilingual. Is there anyway to do so?
