The lang attribute is back to XHTML Basic 1.1

Francois Daoust
Hi,

A very long time ago, back in May 2009, the Mobile Web Best Practices working group took the following resolution:
  "Add an erratum to mobileOK Basic Tests, at the right time, to point to the edited version of XHTML Basic 1.1 including the lang attribute"
  http://www.w3.org/2009/05/12-bpwg-minutes.html#item01

This resolution was motivated by the re-introduction of the "lang" attribute in XHTML Basic 1.1. Then something went wrong and the updated version of XHTML Basic 1.1 got delayed. I am happy to report that the second edition of the XHTML Basic 1.1 standard, that integrates the "lang" attribute, has been published as a W3C Recommendation:
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/REC-xhtml-basic-20101123/

I re-opened ACTION-959 [1] on me to enact that resolution and will:
- add the erratum to mobileOK Basic Tests
- and update the XHTML Basic 1.1. DTD used by the mobileOK Checker library accordingly.

Thanks,
Francois.

I am closing ACTION-959 as a consequence.
Let me know if you have any comment.

Thanks,
