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
