The following paragraph is quoted from "Microsoft XML Parser in 
Java Release Notes for Version 1.8"

>Section 2.12 adds a new xml:lang attribute. This means that 
>any element can now have this attribute regardless of ATTLIST 
>declaration. For example, the following is valid, even though 
>the DTD says that the test element doesn't have any attributes. 
>  <!DOCTYPE test [ 
>  <!ELEMENT test ANY>
>  ]>
>  <test xml:lang="en">
>  The quick brown fox.
>  </test>

This is clearly incorrect.  The XML PR very clearly requires that 
this attribute must be declared for valid documents.
