Accessibility: No lang attribute on html element

How to replicate: Run an accessibility audit like WAVE, and note that there is no lang attribute.

The lang attribute must be set on the html element, and it must reflect the main language of the page. Since the Cohost website is currently in English, it should probably be:

<html lang="en"></html>

 I also noticed that language translations are "planned," so changing the lang attribute to whatever language is being displayed should be part of that process.

This also relates to a feature request I've made, "Accessibility: Set the language of posts."

I really hope they take the accessibility features more seriously, it sounds like maybe they have it in mind but hopefully these things are fixed and added in so more people can access the site
