i have planned to use the xml:lang attribute to specify the language of the 
content element. But, regarding the XML 1.0 specification, this attribute can 
also be applied to the value of the CDATA attributes. So, it is impossible at 
the same level to have an attribute in English and the content of the element 
in French :

<div xml:lang="fr" type="chapter">Un chapitre en franšais.....</div>

For those who are dealing with multilingual documents, i would like to know 
their ways of handling this. Is someone using the xml:lang attribute to 
specify the language of the attribute values ?
