The language that Smarty gives you is not, actually, (I believe)
Turing equivalent. You can add more functions to make it Turing
equivalent, but out of the box (again, I believe) it's not. Does this
mean that it doesn't qualify as a programming language?
Also, XHTML = eXtensible (right?) HypterText Markup Language. Doesn't
that make it a markup language, as opposed to a programming language?
I *know* that XHTML isn't Turing equivalent.
I know this is a bit off topic. I pray that the Gods of the List will
forgive me. </melodrama>
