i18n-ISSUE-119: provide example of language detection fallback
Last modified: 2012-09-14 10:55:42 UTC
22.214.171.124 The lang and xml:lang attributes
For this much discussed paragraph:
If none of the node's ancestors, including the root element, have either attribute set, but there is a pragma-set default language set, then that is the language of the node. If there is no pragma-set default language set, then language information from a higher-level protocol (such as HTTP), if any, must be used as the final fallback language instead. In the absence of any such language information, and in cases where the higher-level protocol reports multiple languages, the language of the node is unknown, and the corresponding language tag is the empty string.
Wouldn't an example be useful? I can imagine implementers not following what the heck we're talking about.
Any suggestions of a realistic example we could add here?
