WCAG Samurai Errata for WCAG 1.0

This is very interesting, even commonsense in a way, and someone needed to speak up.

Yet I don’t understand Do not attempt to mark up language changes inside attribute values. Does that mean one can’t use lang attributes other than in span or div? And if so, why?

    No, he said "inside attribute values", ie, for example :

    <img src='toto.jpg' alt='mash-up de google et yahoo'/>

    "mash-up", "google", and "yahoo" are in english; "de", "et" are in french.

    The phrase you quote basically says that he doesn’t want to markup language in such values.
