Hi Hiroaki,

uups, I forgot this one. In this case I would suggest to even introduce two
new vars; IMO CONTENT_LANG would be okay for this.

You're right. According to W3C "A special attribute named xml:lang _may be_
inserted in documents to specify the language used in the contents and
attribute values of any element in an XML document."

If I get this right, we safely could leave out the xml:lang definition but
for the sake of correctness I would propose to take use of a new var to get
in a proper definition for all languages (en, de, fr, ja, etc.).

So, I'm +1 on introducing two new vars to get this working.
