I know that. I also knew that productions 33 through 38 had been made
obsolete by an erratum and that the only normative reference for xml:lang
values was RFC 1766. That's why I said the 2-letter language code *portion*
of xml:lang values. This is in reference to those RFC 1766 conforming
language identifiers that include 2-letter language codes. The text of RFC
1766 describes exactly when and where those codes are to be used.
