Question: when we use the attribute "lang" will it change the language of the text (Example Is Below).
EX. <p lang="fr">Hello World</p>

The "lang" attribute is used to identify what language the content is in, it does not cause any action to occur. It might be used in a search to return only pages using a specified language.
The example shown above is not a valid use of the attribute! Here it as again along with a proper one:
<p lang="fr">Hello World</p> <!-- IMPROPER use of attribute (language mismatch) --> <p lang="fr">Bonjour le Monde</p> <!-- correct use of attribute -->
