And what would it mean to say that a programming language was in a 
particular language? Perhaps it would mean that the 'computer' to 
process the language, would actually be a human being?

I will hereby offer you a snippet in the form of hyper-link expressed 
in the computer language HTTP - not? - with rich snippets inside, 
inspired by a non-computer language:

HTML is also a computer program source code. My plan was anyhow to make 
a HTML version, to be read by those who read HTML.
