Expected behaviour
The html element should reflect the language of the contents sent to the browser.

Current behaviour
The html element is always rendered as follows regardless the language of the contents:

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Dashboard
  2. Go to Administration > Language
  3. Choose a lang other than English, e.g. Brazilian Portuguese
  4. Open the source of the page and inspect the html element and its attributes

Your environment (version of Archivematica, OS version, etc)
AM18 qa/1.x a90faa9.

It would be nice to fix this alongside the final i18n things!
