Subject: RE: [Comment on ITS WD] Use of xml:lang


"The language information data category provides for rules to be expressed at a global level because it is unnecessary locally.
Locally users are able to use xml:lang..."

I suggest:

"The language information data category only provides for rules to be expressed at a global level. Locally users are able to use
xml:lang..."


The 'because it is unnecessary locally' is a little confusing - it can temporarily lead the reader to think that local language
declarations are not necessary.
