Comments are being sought on the following new articles prior to final 
publication. NOTE THAT the articles are in a temporary location, and 
will be moved to their final location after the review.

1    Working with language in HTML (tutorial format)

     This is a reworking of an existing tutorial [1] to conform to the 
new tutorial format. It will replace the old version.

2    Why use the language attribute?

     This is a reworking of an existing article [2] to bring it up to 
date. It will replace the old version.

3    Declaring language in HTML

     This is a new article derived from information that was originally 
in the tutorial mentioned above. The information has been rewritten, and 
changes have been made to reflect recent developments for HTML5.

4    HTTP and meta for language information

     This is a reworking of an existing article [3] to reflect recent 
developments in HTML5 and improve the fit with other pages listed here. 
It will replace the old version.

All articles use a new template with additional change to the 
boilerplate code. They are written in HTML5.

Please send any comments over the next two weeks to 

We hope to publish a final version shortly after the end of the review
