"Below" -:) other languages; i.e., this attribute could specify/modified other specifications coming from "above". For example, if the meta (above) says that the languages of the file (intended audience) are "en, fr" (i.e., the document is bilingual), this attribute could state the "text-processing language" at a point in the document.
