I had a phone message from Graham pointing out that the text in

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/TR/WD-rdf-schema-20030117/#ch_label

[[
Multilingual labels are supported using the language tagging facility of 
RDF literals.
]]

(and also about rdfs:comment) may not be strictly true in that richer 
markup may be required for some languages.

I suggest possible alterantive text ( which I'm not precious about )

[[
A language may be associated with a label using the language tagging 
facility of plain RDF literals.  If markup is required to represent the 
label, then rdf:parseType="Literal" may be used.
]]
