Web apps currently states :
# Authors should not use the lang attribute in XML documents. Authors
# should instead use the xml:lang attribute.
Is there any reason for not making that "must not"? The only reason
someone would ever have for using lang instead of xml:lang in XHTML is
when serving it as text/html, which is strictly forbidden in this
version. It should be stated that lang is for HTML only and xml:lang is
for X(HT)ML only.
I think the heading for the attribute defintion should be updated to
include xml:lang as well.
