Shailendra,

In the enclosed files I have marked up your text (both in the same way).
Each file uses a different way of assigning styling.  If you try these
on different browsers you will see that (as described in the FAQ), the
one that uses classes is rendered properly on more browsers - which is a
shame, because I think it would be better to use :lang.  I would
therefore currently suggest using classes unless you know your audience
only uses a particular browser and version.

[I have changed en-GB to en, since British English spelling of
Localization is usually with an 's'.  I used an over-large font-size for
the english text to show that it works.]

Hth,
RI


PS: Do you know anyone who could do a good job of translating the text
at http://people.w3.org/rishida/scripts/samples/english.html into Hindi
for me (in Unicode)? It's to complete the set at
