Lang tag in the HTML
« on: April 27, 2011, 01:07:06 pm »

Hi,

I'm using the Curve standard theme, and noticed that in the template for most themes the first lineas follow this template:

Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang=[b]"en"[/b] lang=[b]"en"[/b] dir="{LANG_DIR}">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset={CHARSET}" />
...

and, since the language is harcoded that means less accesibility and SEO.

I think that Coppermins could use the $lang_translation_info['lang_country_code'] tag in the language file to set it, in order to create better HTML code. I believe that it's a bad idea to change it in the theme templates by user, since new versions would revert those modifications.

Thanks in advance,

Jose Luis.
