The point is that if a site identifies the language of a page through HTTP
(as it should) then that ought to be fine.

  As far as I'm concerned it's a Bobby bug, even when the Language is set
  in the HTTP headers Bobby has this:

     1.  Identify the language of the text. (1 instance)
         Line 3

  The last version of Bobby came up with loads of 'browser compability'
  errors when one was using XHTML rather than HTML, most of these seem to
  have been fixed apart from supporting xml:lang.
