I would like to get better clarification on the use of ISO language
identifiers from RFC3066 in xml:lang attributes of grammars, prompts,
etc.

In the case of using the valid "en" primary language subtag - and when 2
more more languages are supported, such as "en-US" and "en-UK", by the
platform - and in the case no root xml:lang is specified, which one
takes precendence?  

I would assume that the platform would make the choice, based on the
locale preference of the location. Could the VBWG give further
clarification on this logic and their precendence?

Thank You.

Jeff
