Dear List, 

does anyone know how to properly encode the language of a bibliographic
reference or better, the language of the document the reference points to?

Regardless of weather using <biblStruct>, <bibl> or <biblFull> there
seems to be no genuine element for this task. The closest thing I came
up with so far is to assign an @xml:lang attribute to the <title>
element of the bibliographic description and take this as an indication
of the language of the document itself.

However, I would be much more happy with a "<langUsage><language
indent="...">...</language><langUsage>"-way of doing this.

Best regards, Matthias
