What Does X% of Issues Mean?

If vendors are pitching based on their ability to catch X% of issues on a page, ask them to define "issues".

Subheadings, subtitles, alternative titles and taglines in HTML

Until recently there was no dedicated method in HTML to identify content as a subheading, subtitle, alternative title or tagline. Now there is.

Quick Tip: Document and Content Language

The lang attribute in HTML should be used to identify the language of web pages and of other-language content within a web page. There are over 8,000 language codes, but in most cases it's best to use the most succinct value for a particular language - typically two characters (e.g., lang="en") is sufficient.
