Not sure what you are asking for here.

All browsers read (X)HTML, this is not OS dependant. Page data.

All "modern" browsers read CSS, OS independant. Page Layout.

"Most" modern browsers read Javascript, OS independant but user
switchable. Page programming language.

"Most" modern browsers allow Flash and Java, OS independant, but must be
downloaded by user. Object programming languages.

Server side scripting, (ASP, CGI or PHP for instance) is not OS, browser
or user dependant. Page generating Languages.

If you were clearer in your request more help could be forthcoming.
