Ha! "working code" isn't necessarily "good code"...

Well, what Adam said is not exactly in line with what the comic portrays. HTML is not a language, so it's not about being "good", it's about actually being "compatible".

Hmmm. I wonder what the 'L' in HTML stands for then.

As it has been pointd out before, the L in HTML stands for Language. So it is one. But HTML is not a programming language. HTML's quality is about compatibility and standard complicance.

In Germany, there are "wannabe professionals" who insist on that they're "programming Internet Sites in HTML" (go count the errors in this statement). :-)
