I ran your suggested test using FrontPage's <meta> language settings and set
the default language to French. I then typed a French paragraph, then I
typed an English paragraph with <p lang="en"> and the first paragraph was
read in French (the default setting) and the second paragraph was read in
English.


So, JAWS 5.0 does support language switching whether using the W3C's <html
lang=""> or FrontPage's <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="fr">.
We should have anticipated this given that Microsoft's products are so
prevalent and it makes sense that Freedom Scientific would support all MS
products.
