As the bear said. I know html and css but they aren't programming languages. I'm average on php. I'll be learning a lot more after the new year though. Having a look at XML (which isn't programming), Java and C++. Would have learn't 'em a while ago but just haven't been able to for the last 6 months.
Uhhh… for actual programming langauges? Is PHP considered a programming language? I know PHP, I’m pretty okay with JS, and, as soon as I get off my butt, I shall be attempting to add C++ to my collection.
Thousand different paths
So many sterile ends
I chose the Devil's path
Never shall the sun kiss my face
And caress me with it's burning light
For I dwell in the shadows
And sleep side by side with death
JS is a low-level programming language, as are most web programming langauges.
Any language that by itself that can perform the 4 basic calculator functions can be considered a programming language. Scripting languages are low-level prog. languages.
I am a big VB fan, and a big Pascal fan. Both nice and easy, and for lack of a better term, BASIC.
What many seem to forget is that low level does not just regard as more code, less english. Low-level is a double meaning term. Low level also refers to power of a language, in which it is application languages which are high level.
Languages of low level in its other rerence included COBOL.

I never, ver claim it did. The fact I said can be considered hints/implies that it is a very simple and basic test. It indeed is not the requirement, but it is an easier way of determining it right off the bat.
The goal of course of it is to prove that HTML is not a prog. lang, which is a belief many believe in.
I don't like to, but I would like that if you must question me on what I say, which I find perfectly acceptable, 'twould be nice if you undersood the quote in which you are questioning

Recall that all your Xs are not programming langauges at all, and neither is CSS. These markup/presentational/blah so-called languages do not have the power of programming langauges.
... To tell you the truth, neither do all low-level porg. languages, such as the rest you named, preferably JS and DHTML, in which variables are not handled correctly as defined by programming conventions.
