An update for the article Declaring language in HTML has just been published.
This page describes how to mark up an HTML page so that it gives information about the language of the page. It begins with an overall summary, then provides additional details in subsequent sections.
The material was reorganised to expand the quick answer section and de-emphasise the information about XML/XHTML declarations.
These articles were translated into Russian thanks to Dmitri Kuznetsov, of the Russian Translation Agency, Taushiro Inc.
The article Declaring language in HTML was changed at the end of May. A noticeable change was the introduction of additional headings, to enable readers to more quickly spot relevant information. Also a new section was added: What if element content and attribute values are in different languages?
German, Spanish, Russian and Ukranian translators are asked to update their translations.
These articles were translated into German thanks to Gunnar Bittersmann.
