Muy interesante el análisis que se presenta en HTML is Not a Programming Language?:
HTML is not a programming language.
I’ve heard that sentence so many times and it’s tiring. Normally, it is followed by something like, It doesn’t have logic, or, It is not Turing complete,.so… obviously it is not a programming language. Like it’s case-closed and should be the end of the conversation.
Should it be, though?
I want to look at typical arguments I hear used to belittle HTML and offer my own rebuttals to show how those claims are not completely correct.
My goal is not to prove that HTML is or is not a programming language, but to show that the three main arguments used for claiming it is not are flawed or incorrect, thus invalidating the conclusion from a logical point of view.
