This is all described in HTML 4.01:

<URL: >:

    An element inherits language code information according to
    the following order of precedence (highest to lowest):

    * The lang attribute set for the element itself.
    * The closest parent element that has the lang attribute set
      (i.e., the lang attribute is inherited).
    * The HTTP "Content-Language" header (which may be configured
      in a server).
    * User agent default values and user preferences.

(Though I disagree that the user agent's or OS's language/locale
settings should be used.)
