I18N-ISSUE-61: Mention lang and xml:lang [Polyglot]

http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/61

Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: Polyglot

7. Attributes
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-html-polyglot-20100624/#attributes

WG Approved: Yes


No mention is made of the lang and xml:lang attributes. The document should say that both should be used when language attributes are used.

It may also recommend the use of the language attributes in the html element to set the default language for the document, and mention that the meta Content-Language element has no usefulness at all in XML for setting the language of content.
