This is the CSS WG's response to an issue you raised on the last CSS
2.1 draft (http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915). We want to
publish CSS 2.1 as a CR in about two weeks. Please let us know this
week if you think our response is wrong.

Your e-mail:
    Does ':lang()' match elements that have language set to the empty

    It might be thought to match all languages, since in the absence
    of simple selectors, * is presumed, so it is conceivable that
    absence of a tag might be equivalent to all. It might also be
    deemed to be an error to have no tag inside the parens.

    So the spec should address the issue.
