- Working Group Note
- "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.
