Github Issues and post TPAC

PaulG: click on w3c diff link in-order to see the changes

PaulG: if you have chance to read that, lets get it ready. goal is to set this up for CFC after TPAC.

JF: wondering if there is any value showing in code example?

PaulG: we could do that

JF: looking some paragraphs and showing some examples will help cementing the ideas.

PaulG: we rely on verbal where pronunciation matters. it is very important to give machine enough info.

Alan_: w3c is saying, you should always put the lang attr in HTML document.

PaulG: its not HTML violation

JF: but it is WCAG requirements

janina: I am wondering if this is violation of EPUB. will take a look

janina: declaring a lang is required in EPUB?

<JF> language preferences actually happen in 3 places: the document, the AT (preference), and the OS.

<JF> @janina ePub accessibility mandates WCAG 2.x conformance

PaulG: if anything comes in mind, feel free to add as a comment
