HtmlParser & TXTParser should not use language returned by CharsetDetector if language
hint has been provided
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: TIKA-339
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-339
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.6
            Reporter: Ken Krugler
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.6


Currently the code used to call CharsetDetector in both TXTParser and HtmlParser is that any
incoming language in the metadata map gets replaced if the detector returns a language.

Given the low reliability of this language result, it should only be used in cases where there
is no provided language, as typically this is coming in from either the Http response header
or (for the HtmlParser) a meta tag or some other tag attribute. In all those cases, the incoming
language is more accurate than the guess by the CharsetDetector.
