ISO Language Codes

In HTML, you can specify the language of web pages using ISO language codes. To do so, you should use the lang attribute inside the <html> element.

For example, to specify that the language is Spanish, your root element - the <html> element - should look like this <html lang="es"> because es is the ISO language code for spanish.
