I'm doing accessibility testing and one error that keeps appearing is the
one requiring that the language attribute be added to the topics (WCAG
2.0: Success Criterion 3.1.1: The value of the LANG attribute must be set
to one of the ISO 639 language codes. [LanguageISO639_2]). I can't seem
to get Robo to recognize the recommended line of code: <html
xmlns=""; xml:lang="en" lang="en"> and can't
find anything about this on the Adobe site. Does anyone know how to do
this? Thanks.
