Proposed text:

<section>
<h1>6.x HTTP headers and http-equiv declarations</h1>

Some HTTP headers and http-equiv declarations need special attention in
Polyglot Markup.

<h2>6.x.1 Content-Language</h2>

Example - http-equiv: <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="ru"/>
Example - HTTP header: Content-language: ru

There are no direct issues with regard to the use of Content-Language. However,
this is based on the precondition that the <a href=#language-attributes
> >language on the root element is declared</a> (to stay clear of the nuances of
how Content-Language affects HTML vs XML) is followed.

<h2>6.x.2 Content-Type</h2>

The HTTP Content-Type: header have no extra rules or restrictions.
Whereas the http-equiv="Content-Type" declaration is forbidden in polyglot
markup.

Also seee <a href="#character-encoding">Specifying a Document's Character
Encoding</a>.
