Updated article: Styling using language attributes

Read the article

The major change was the addition of detailed information about use of CSS selectors with xml:lang, but there were many other edits (see the list below). Translators should consider retranslating the whole tutorial. [search keys: qa-css-lang]

The article was updated as follows:

  • added section “Using CSS selectors with xml:lang”
  • the title was slightly changed
  • information about browser support was replaced with a link to test results (updated)
  • various edits throughout to improve readability
  • removed the paragraph that says that generic class or id selectors work best, since support for selectors has significantly improved
  • updated various links and added links to new materials.
