For the record, there's a related W3C recommendation:

http://www.w3.org/TR/its/

which, among lots of other features, has its:translate="no".

Google Translate supports `class="notranslate"`
(http://translate.google.com/support/)


Theoretically such effect could be achieved with `lang=zxx`, although this
loses information about language text is in (which may be useful for screen
readers).

Another solution could be something like `lang="en-notranslate"` (i.e. correct
language code with some suffix indicating it should not be translated).
