      Description

      I believe that currently, the network server fails to implement point 3.1.1 of WCAG2.0 accessibility guidelines.
      See:
      http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/
      and more specifically:
      http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/Overview.html#meaning-doc-lang-id

      Practically, I think this can be achieved by modifying the method printBanner and adding the locale to the existing
      out.println( "<html>" );
