Is HTML a programming language ?

HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is not a programming language, but rather a markup language used for creating and structuring content on the web.

Unlike programming languages, HTML does not have the ability to perform complex operations, make decisions or carry out calculations. Instead, HTML is used to create the structure and content of web pages, defining the text, images, and other elements that make up a web page.

However, HTML is often used in conjunction with programming languages such as JavaScript and PHP to create dynamic and interactive web pages. These programming languages are used to add interactivity, perform calculations and operations, and connect to databases and other web services.
