[Pro] Specifying Page Language

I have long been using the “HTML Language” action to specify page language. Using that action to specify English applies the following code to the page:

html lang=“EN”

But Freeway 5 allows us to specify page language by a popup menu in the Inspector. In such a case, Freeway will generate the following code:

meta http-equiv=Content-Language content=“en”

My question is, which is better to use and why? And is there any reason to use both?

Thank you,

James Wages

Hi James,

An interesting question, take a look at this document:

http://www.w3.org/TR/i18n-html-tech-lang/#ri20060630.133619987

There are arguments for each approach, and both are possible in
Freeway. To apply an attribute (the lang=“la”) to individual items on
the page, select some text and use the Language option in the Style
menu.

I hope this helps.

Joe
