Discussion on: Are CSS and HTML programming languages?

I don't really see any core to this. Do they not have syntax? Do they not require study to use well? New CSS has built-in variables, and can pass them back and forth to JS for processing.

Yes, someone who codes Hello World has started down the road to being a programmer. No one would pay them yet, but that's where the journey begins. Did you birth fully formed applications from a crevice in your forehead, like the mighty Zeus? Or start with something humbler?

They are languages, with syntax, used to build applications. What would you call that? Are low-level engineers so fragile that this notion would ruin them?
