Sometimes it is good to know, which language the browser is running with, when a user navigates to a web page. In JavaScript you can use

navigator.userLanguage

to get the language of the browser (tested with Internet Explorer 7). On Selfhtml you may find

navigator.language

but maybe different browsers behave different.

If you have to write your code for different browsers, you may use this script:

var languageinfo=navigator.language? navigator.language : navigator.userLanguage
