Hi Richard,

Where is the word "pragma" coming from?  I know what it means in computer
language processing and in HTTP, but neither has anything to do with
content-language and I find it very confusing.

My concern for HTML5 is that the orthogonality of http-equiv be preserved.
I suggest you take the lead on the changes regarding language default and
I'll construct a change that makes it clear what http-equiv means and why.
