That's because this has nothing to do with selectors and everything to do with 
HTML.  Like Selectors says, the language determination is up to the document 
language.  Which means you want to be reading the HTML specification for details.

I believe http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/dirlang.html#h-8.1.2 covers this 
in quite sufficient detail and clarity.
