XHTML uses the xml:lang attribute, but also supports the lang
attribute of HTML4.01 and previous, and this should be used as well
for backwards-compatibility (although in the case of a conflict
browsers should respect xml:lang over lang). Ergo:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="de" lang="de">
