You can add this in your main master page layout.

<script runat="server">
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (CurrentDocument != null)
        {            CMS.UIControls.ContentPage page= this.Page as CMS.UIControls.ContentPage;
            if (page != null)
            {
                string lang= CMS.Localization.LocalizationContext.CurrentCulture.CultureCode;
                page.XmlNamespace += " lang=\"" + lang + "\"";
            }
        }
    }
</script>

Brenden's answer is spot on. I will also add this line because sometime some of the tools give this error unless this tag is defined too.

page.XmlNamespace += " xml:lang=\"" + lang + "\"";

Hi Everyone,

I've used the code above In my master page layout. It's rendering the lang attributes perfectly when I inspect the page, but when I run it through a validator, and on view page source, I'm getting a duplication of lang="en-CA". Any thoughts?
