When you look at the details for the HTML it will tell you that the language
is English. It is obviously not. Technically all content in
Wikisource.orgthat is not English should be marked for the language
that it is.

Having content marked English while it is in actual fact not English means
that the meta-data of the page is wrong. Having multiple languages within
the same MediaWiki database is technically a disaster. It is not marked in
any way what language it is. This is in and of itself bad.
