    the term excaped my mind, yes it's a scripting language...

    HTML css and similar are all scriptinglanguages, which is what I'd meant. WHen I said it wasnt' a language I meant it wasn't a programming language.

    all right. it's made with C, so i still count it as a programming language :P jk.

    html is a markup language, not a scripting language. CSS is a 'mechanism' (as quoted by w3c.org) :)

    all markup languages also fall under the category of scripting languages if 'm not mistaken

    ^^ bah Perl may have the extendibility but it doesn't have the smooth and simpleness of PHP...

    Scripting languages are just interpreted programming languages, so markup does not fall into that category, because it does not allow you program (ie. make decisions based on input etc).

    So markup is html, css, xml etc.
    and scripting is php, perl, javascript........



    As for my preferences:

    Compiled: C
    Interpreted: Perl, Bash

    I'd always assumed that anythign which was interpretted case by case was a scripting language tand that markup languages are case-specific markup languages which specify formatting

    guess I'm wrong.
