Comment Type: general comment
Summary of Issue: Incorrect Japanese language code
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Japanese language identification is not  correct and may not be recognized by appropriate user agents and assistive technologies

Proposed Change:
For each resource in Japanese write lang="ja" instead of lang="jp".
While looking for an errata page for Understanding WCAG 2.0, we saw that this error was already recorded on the WCAG errata page at: 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/errata/
We corrected it in our French CAT of Understanding WCAG 2.0, as suggested by Shadi. 
This comment concerns also Understanding SC 3.1.3, keyword idiom, example 2.
Best
Sylvie
