A11Y check: HTML elements with lang and xml:lang must have the same base language

Accessibility rule: The HTML document must contain a valid lang attribute or must correspond to a valid lang code for multilingual screen reader users who may prefer a language other than the default. The xml:lang attribute value, if included on the html element, must duplicate the value of the lang exactly.
