    Post What is benefit of xml:lang attribute in html?

    I've seen HTML Code that look like follow:
    <p xml:lang="en">
    Any type of content that is written in English language.
    Now what is the benefit of this?
    Guys What the benefit, I mean we can see this attribute in html code then we'll know that above content is written in English Language. What of benefit of this tag to browser? What is the purpose of this attribute? What it will done for me if i use it?

    Personally I have not seen this used in a tag like this before but I would assume its for a page that has mixed languages displayed which is not the sites default.
    I cant think of any SEO benefit other than to not confuse google by displaying other languages.
