Just for the heck of it I went into Bing's Webmaster Central and they've got an SEO Analyzer link. Just put in the URL and have it analyzed.
So, I entered one and the results it gave back were:
Use <meta http-equiv="content-language" content="ll-cc"> tag in the <head> section of your page, where "ll-cc" stands for the culture code of the language and country/region the content applies to. Alternatively use the lang="ll-cc" attribute on either the <html> or the <title> tag .
The Meta Language information is used as a hint to help us understand the intended language and country/region the page content applies to. This can help if your site is not hosted in the country/region. Use the “content-language” meta tag to embed the culture code in the <head> section of your page. For example, <meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en-gb"> indicates that the page is in English and intended for the the United Kingdom. Alternatively, you can use <html lang="en-gb"> or <title lang="en-gb">.
Which according to W3C is obsolete [w3.org]?
If this is in fact correct, then are we to build pages that aren't only backwards compatible but are also backwards looking? ;)
