A very good point: It would be better if only one form for the language
label is allowed.  Otherwise, it is bound to be more confusing and the
programs would have to check for all the possible forms.

Whatever form is choosen, it has to *fake* the HTTP header.  In
particular, if the <HTML LANG=...> is choosen the server must fake the
HTTP header as in the other <META HTTP-EQUIV...>.
