Discussion on: Are CSS and HTML programming languages?

Personally, I would say yes, but my definition of a programming language is more fluid. For instance, you could ask a similar question for esoteric languages like brainf*ck or data languages like yml or json. As long as the content of the text is being interpreted/ compiled by a computer, it’s a programming language.

Now, there are definitely levels to this as some languages can accomplish a lot more than others, but that’s a different discussion.
