Interesting! It is difficult to handle the lang attribute for some one 
like me who live in a multicultural environment, where a mix of 
languages is omnipresent. I even set the lang attribute for single 
words. And i think this is of what the lang attribute stay for.

No idea how screen readers handle this. But my question is; should text 
writers, who are attentive to web standards, care on how accessible 
technologies (jaws version 5,6,7,9,...) handle texts? Is it not the job 
of such technologies to make it readable for its users in a proper way?
