Discussion on: Are CSS and HTML programming languages?

I think with html 5 you could argue html turned into a declarative programming language. For a specific domain at least.

The discourse around this has become incredibly muddied by the heated discussions that programmers have in defense of "their" technology. If you look at how something like LaTex is lauded but html is looked down upon its easy to see that many people aren't discussing this in good faith.
