Changes made. Draft now incorporates language to fix 12278, as well as to
resolve this bug:

]] Content-Language

 The following HTTP headers and http-equiv declarations warrant special
discussion in polyglot markup. 

http-equiv: <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="ru"/>
HTTP header: Content-language: ru

 There are no direct issues with regard to the use of Content-Language as long
as the language attribute is declared on the root element, as described in
Language Attributes. Polyglot markup must declare both the xml:lang as well as
the lang attributes on the root element when there is a Content-Language
(http-equiv pragma or HTTP header) whose value is exactly a single language
tag. By declaring the language attribute on the root element, polyglot markup
avoids a difference between XML and HTML in regard to Content-Language. 

 For the sake of simplicity and expediency, content to be delivered as polyglot
markup may always include both the xml:lang as well as the lang attributes on
the root element. 

Thanks so much.
