HTML is not a programming language.  Lookup the definition of a programming
language and the definition of a markup language.  HTML does not do anything
programatically.  That is like calling the ':'s in the /etc/passwd file
programming because the are used to mark field divisions by the programs
that parse them.

How thick is your skull?  How many times does someone need to say this?

You *admit* to not knowing the history nor the purpose of HTML, so why
don't you stop making moronic, misinformed comments about it.  If you
don't know the history of HTML why do you insist on making these comments?
