I must say that I have sympathy for Francois' argument in this debate.
Requiring other applications to parse semantics specifically designed
for support of HTTP seems to me to be bad architecture.

So I'm for using <HTML LANG=>; the servers may very well want to generate
content-language: from this header if <meta http-equiv> is not present.
