That's another great point! IMO, markdown is not a programming language because it's more for styling text - but that's me coming from a writing background and now I'm thinking about how markdown functions and is built. It's more complicated than I thought at first 🤔

Seems to me you're rubbing up on the same issue as with HTML. It's a markup language used to program how to generate some output!
