OK, not even going to begin to explain this but, if your website is in different languages but has the same content, you might want to check this out.

And I have mine set, so that people get my website in one of the two languages available. Part of the wordpress plug-in that I use for language. It's really cool, too.

Basically it's a mixture of href (hyperlink reference) and lang (language)

I was thinking about you when I posted this. Figured you knew it, but just in case...

Thanks. I use a WP add-on WPML that handles multiple languages. It makes sure that we remember to have other language pages around. It tracks that there is a translation for each page. It's pretty cool. 

I would add even more languages, except that I'm afraid that if I do, I'll get emails in those languages and I'll be up a creek without a paddle.
