Language not specified

I get this error although my html has <html lang="en">

Is there something else that it's looking for?

Also, my book being photos + a short intro, will it be detrimental to actually set a language at all? Pictures are fairly universal.

I also find that a similar warning about Creator is output when converting to mobi

Assuming you're using captions at all, specifying a language is still a valid endeavor. Just in case someone reading the book wants to translate the text they will know the source language.

"plate" is english? Right?
"Plate 1" is still a simple form of caption if it is visible

Is something going to be confused by declaring a Language, even if no text shows?

True enough. I was more concerned that perhaps people searching for books in their language wouldn't find a book if it was set to a different language.
