 These comments relate to the "Authoring Techniques for XHTML & HTML
Internationalization" working draft, available at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-i18n-html-tech-lang-20041015/.
 
(1) The working draft uses the terms "document" and "page" alternatively to
refer to HTML documents, without explicitly introducing them.  I am
concerned that the term "page" may be misleading, and may not be understood
as an equivalent to "document" by all readers.
 
(2) The purpose of using the <meta> tag with attribute
http-equiv="Content-Language" is not clear.  It is mentioned that user
agents typically do not recognize it.  Is it only used by search engines, or
also be Web servers to determine the appropriate HTTP header field?  Is
there any source for this information?
