 Re: XPath to select node according to xml:lang attribu
Well I do have a question to that still:

<text id="color" xml:lang="en">colour</text>
<text id="color" xml:lang="en-us">color</text>

using //text[@id='color' and (lang('en-us') or lang('en')]/text() will
always return "colour" although I am expecting "color". I know
attributes are not ordered, but can you not have the perfect match be
in the selected result first?
