HTML <html> Tag with the 'lang' Attribute

<html lang="en">
<title>Document Title</title>
<p>Content goes here...</p>

The above example demonstrates usage of the <html> element with the lang Attribute.

The W3C encourages authors to include the lang attribute on the <html> element in their HTML documents. Doing so aids speech synthesis tools to determine what pronunciations to use, translation tools to determine what rules to use, etc.
