It should be for ...
- HTML: <div class="blogformat" lang="de">:
- XHTML 1.0: <div class="blogformat" lang="de" xml:lang="de">
- XHTML 1.1: <div class="blogformat" xml:lang="de">

I'm not sure if this is acctualy needed. Humans will probably recognize
the language form <span class="descritpion">, machines may look at the
lang attribute of <div class="blogformat">

I think it should be http://technorati.com/tags/Webstandards

I think it should be http://wikipedia.org/wiki/XHTML
instead of http://wikipedia.com/XHTML, same for CSS.

If "description" is a sentence which explains the topic of the wiki it
using <p> instead of <span> would make sense.
