Updated article: Language tags in HTML and XML

The GEO Working Group has published a significantly updated article:

 Language tags in HTML and XML

At: http://www.w3.org/International/articles/language-tags/

(Contributed by Martin Dürst & Richard Ishida, W3C)

Language tags are used to indicate the language of text in HTML and XML documents, and are also used in HTTP headers, SMIL and SVG switch statements, CSS pseudo-elements, etc. This article describes how to choose values for language tags.

The article augments an existing article with information that previously existed in a tutorial. The article title was also changed from "Language tagging in HTML and XML".
