Decommissioned tutorials

The tutorials “An Introduction to Multilingual Web Addresses” and “Using language information in XHTML, HTML and CSS” have been decommissioned, to facilitate updating of material and reduce duplication.

The information in the first tutorial is already covered by the more up-to-date article An Introduction to Multilingual Web Addresses. The meat of the second tutorial is covered by the articles Styling using the lang attribute, and Setting language preferences in a browser.

Categories: Update

New tutorial: Using language information in XHTML, HTML and CSS

This tutorial was decommissioned on 4 June, 2007.

Link to tutorial

Information about the language in use on a page is important for accessibility, styling, searching, and other reasons. In addition, language information that is typically transmitted between the user agent and server can be used to help improve navigation for users and the localizability of your site. This tutorial will help you take advantage of the opportunities that are available now and in the near future by using language information appropriately.

After reading this tutorial you should:

  • know how to apply language-specific CSS styling, where browsers support it
  • have a general understanding of the concept of server-based language negotiation
