Description
"Internationalization Best Practices: Specifying Language in XHTML and HTML Content" is one of a planned series of documents providing HTML authors with best practices for developing internationalized HTML. It provides practical best practices related to specifying the language of content that HTML content authors can use to ensure that their HTML is easily adaptable for an international audience.
Workflow stage:
1.3, 1.8
Business value:
Specifying the language of content is necessary for a wide number of functions, from linguistically-sensitive searching to applying language-specific display properties. It is required for any global deployment of Web sites. These best practices should be applied at the start of content development if unnecessary costs and resource issues are to be avoided later on.
