What if instead of putting it in the <html> tag you were to put it in the <title> tag?
Sure, that would work-- if your page is in Hungarian and the title is in Greek so it needs to be separately labeled.
This is probably a dumb question but I'm feeling dumb.
Does not the following by it's definition and implication mean that it's English?
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" >
Huh? Why would it? In fact, if it's in a language using a non-Roman script-- or even most Eastern European languages-- it would have to be UTF-8.
You may be thinking of the //EN element in some dtd's. This only means that the html tags themselves are English. Which they'd have to be, because nobody ever got around to making html in other languages. (Whew! What a lot of extra work that would make for browsers.)
would your example pass Section 508
Um. Er. I dunno. What's section 508? Is there stuff in sections 1-507 that I also need to worry about? :(
