HTML ISO Language Codes

HTML is not limited to the English language. Even though the default language is English, HTML supports all of the ISO certified languages. The HTML <lang> attribute is used to define the language. The <lang> attribute always comes in the <html> tag. Instead of defining the complete name of the country, HTML allows you to use two letter codes. Here is a simple demonstration of it.

Developers of HTML understood it and allow to add ISO certified languages in HTML. Every language has a specific code normally two letters like “en” for English. These codes are ISO certified.
