HTML and CSS
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a style sheet language, which essentially just specifies style for other documents, such as HTML. For an example of CSS, you can take a look at the theme used on this site.
So key things to notice here are:
- By nature, HTML and CSS code can be viewed, so you can see exactly how the site works and why.
- HTML and CSS don't really do much. They primarily just specify how to display things, and then your browser interprets that. Notably, neither is a programming language.
And almost every site uses it. Excessively. Many sites won't even load basic text content (which certainly doesn't require programming code to display) until you decide to allow them to run their code on your computer.
