Who supports lang attribute?

Hello. I have a page with French and German proper names in it. I used
<span> tags to identify the language throughout the page, but the two speech
browsers I have (wemedia talking browser and websound) do not seem to
recognize the different languages specified. Granted, both these browsers
are free. Perhaps you get what you pay for, or perhaps the browser writers
haven't caught up to the w3c folk yet.

Does anyone have a fancier speech browser that recognizes French and German
pronunciation? If so, will you please test
http://www.TheBicyclingGuitarist.net/studies/eagles.htm and let me know how
it sounds.

p.s. I also have a bunch of <cite> tags throughout the text. And I'm getting
tired of typing summary="This layout table contains another layout table
used for WebRing." Once, just once, I'd love to type summary="the opposite
of wintery."
