It seems that the html tag attribute lang is set to "en-CAC" on Commons sites and the WAVE tool does not recognize it as a language. <html lang="en-CAC">

What does CAC stand for? CUNY Academic Commons?

Ray, could you have a look? We use en_CAC internally to load some custom strings, but it would be nice to filter it at the time that we create the lang attribute. (We could probably just go ahead and hardcode it in the header template.)

Hardcoding the lang to en seems like the easiest win here without doing the filtering. Going to proceed with this.
