What was the reason to introduce a new attribute "xml:lang"
instead of "lang"? This bothers both authors and browsers
in different language versions: HTML 4, XHTML 1.0, XHTML 1.1.
HTML has only "lang"; XHTML 1.1 has only "xml:lang";
XHTML 1.0 has both!
For example, Mozilla 1.7 recognizes the lang attribute
but it does not recognize the xml:lang attribute.
What do we gain from "xml:lang"?
