question to the webdav list asking for clarification, as others may also be

I talked to Jim Whitehead on this.  He told me that I must keep the xml:lang

<K:foo xml:lang=f> frenchfoobar </K:foo>

Will result in only ONE value for <K:foo>.  The second value REPLACES the
first even though it is a different lang.
