Description Simon Pieters 2009-01-30 15:06:50 CET
* zcorpan wonders whether a validator should complain if <meta http-equiv=content-language> and <html lang> don't match  
<Lachy> it depends if they're slightly distinct meaning is preserved, or whether they mean the same thing now  
<Lachy> s/they're/their/  
<Lachy> Content-Language is non-conforming in HTML5 anyway  
<zcorpan> Lachy: still, if they don't match, chances are one of them is wrong  
<Lachy> I suppose it could be a useful warning to provide in addition to complaining about the use of content-language
