Fantastic - this means that the test cases have already been useful.

I was supporting the lang attribute on the <html> element, but I was
incorrectly looking for the xml:lang attribute.  This is now fixed. 
I've also allowed the xml:lang attribute to be added to any element to
override the language defined in the <html> element.  I've added test
cases for this.

I have not implemented this and I don't plan to.  It is a lot of work
for something isn't being used currently.  If it gets adoption I'll
look into it.

I've just just added this and created test cases.

I'm not preserving PRE spacing.  I'd like some good examples of this
before I implement it.  I'm struggling to see why you'd want this.

Agreed.  I'm enjoying the collaborative way the microformats community
works.  Keep it coming!
