The xml:lang 'attribute' in XSL-FO is classified as a shorthand  
(http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl11/#xml.lang), and as such, in theory it  
could be used to set the native XSL-FO 'language' property (but at  
the same time also 'country' and 'script', if applicable).

In practice, this shorthand is not-yet-implemented in FOP (http:// 
xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/compliance.html#fo-property-xml:lang).
Even if it would be, it would still suffer the same limitations as  
the 'language' property.


Cheers

Andreas
