Hi, this goes back to a discussion from last month about using
XHTML instead of HTML, specifically, using the xml:lang attribute
instead of lang.  (Using both is fine; using only xml:lang will
lead to problems, I maintained.)

This is from the HPR support list.  I have re-ordered the messages
to make it a little easier to follow.

...which I take to mean that xml:lang is not supported by Home
Page Reader 3.02, while lang is.
