Dear Editor,

in your "Language information and text direction" page,
I have noticed a falsifying typo (or so I think), in the
"Inheritance of language codes" section, "Interpretation of language
codes " sub-section:
> In the context of HTML, a language code should be interpreted by
> user agents as a hierarchy of tokens rather than a single token.
...
> Thus, if the lang attribute value of "en-US" is set for the HTML
> element, a user agent should prefer style information that matches
> "en-US" first, then the more general value "US".

I think, the last word should rather read "en".

Best wishes,
   Otto Stolz
