Description Jon@Chromium 2008-10-07 11:37:19 PDT
Firefox3: OK
     IE7: Fail

Steps:
1. Launch Chrome
2. Go to http://www.w3.org/International/tests/sec-lang-decl-2.html
3. Observe "Styling with :lang" section

Result:
Background color is white

Expected:
Should be green

Currently, webkit does not even offer a way to 
retrieve the value of 'lang/xml:lang' for a given node.

Chromium bug 3212 does  have very little (if any) to do with this.

> 2. Go to http://www.w3.org/International/tests/sec-lang-decl-2.html

This test page is gone. A lot have been done for :lang support, can this be considered resolved now?

Seems to be.  Please re-open if I've mis-understood Jon.
