Right now we have lang attribute set for the entire document, not for

and this could extend to the comments on the post as well.

Thanks for the insights to the API Steve, we are exploring that option as

Alternatively, We could nudge users upfront to specify the language of the

Thanks for the ideas, really appreciate it!
