Markdown is certainly a DSL, it expresses an information structure (as does HTML), which is render-able to multiple output types to make that information intelligible to whomever or whatever is consuming it. It comes down to a definition of 'programming', I would support the view that any instructions that control a system/machine are programming instructions, so yep, Markdown is a programming language...
