Hello All,

Thank you Ishida san for sending FAQs about using CSS LANG selector.

I am explaining my case in short here.

Refer to the attached GIF image: "marathi_text.gif"

This image contains one sentence in Marathi language.
(Sorry, but without GIF I could not show you Marathi text.)

In English, this Marathi language sentence (which is in GIF image)
would read as, "Currently, I am working in the field of Software Localization
(Software Localization)."

Using CSS' LANG selector, I want display English text in the
middle of the Marathi sentence.

In this example, I want to display English words "Software Localization"
in the middle of Marathi text.

My current CSS source code is as follows:

For Marathi: *[lang = "mr"]  {font-family: "BRH Devanagari", serif;
font-size: 15px; }
For English: *:lang(en-GB) {font-family: arial, serif; font-size: 15px; }

What CSS-code should I use, so that I can correctly display English text in
the middle of the Marathi sentence?

Please kindly advise!

Thanks & Regards,

Shailendra Musale
