I agree with you on the evaluation of this proposal.

However, it would be very helpful if you learned some little details
about how the language tags we discuss here are used, and improve
your HTML/XML syntax. The above sentence, marked up as it's own
paragraph, in HTML would look as follows:
<p lang="en">Many people would just call what he says
<span lang="en-newspeak">doublethink</span>, but I think
it's rather clever.</p>
The main points:
- There is no 'lang' element.
- Element names don't take attribute values, only attributes do.
- Element can be nested, and each lang attribute applies to
the extent of its element.
