I am trying to get the lang value from the HTML tag, but the current JavaScript I am using doesn't work.



This is the HTML code I am trying to access:



<html  lang=it-IT>


And the Javascript



if(navigator.appName == 'Netscape')
{
langType = navigator.language;
}
else
{
langType = navigator.browserLanguage;
}


but in testing I still get the value EN-us



Can anyone help?



Thanks!

Use



document.documentElement.lang


As Rob has commented, your code gets the browser's language and not the document's.
