Well, html is commonly combined with css (you’d be mad not to), so I’ll just leave these here…

But that’s HTML+CSS, which is different from just HTML.

I’m aware.

I said it was commonly combined, so yeah, html isn’t a programming lang, but the thing it’s paired with 99% of the time is.

That’s true, but most people thinking “HTML is a programming language” is actually referring to just the HTML part.

I’ll trust you on that since I’ve never encountered one of those.

My only encounter with one of those is me, when I first started doing web development. I think it’s fair to say if someone doesn’t understand what a programming language is to the point where they confuse it with a markup language, they probably don’t understand it enough to link two languages together and realize that combo is a Turing complete solution. Also, from what I’ve seen, most people see HTML and CSS as discrete languages anyway.
