That's like saying the food rules sound like mediterranean cuisine 🙂

If the rule is "add olive oil", then, yes 🙂
(Point is: HTML is one way to follow this guideline, but not the only one.)

Other examples: (La)TeX, typst, Scribe, texinfo, Scribble, Skribilo, and probably many others. Debatable: Markdown.

The original quote I was riffing on depends on a very precise and exclusionary definition of "food". Analogously, what if we consider the word "data" in my version load-bearing. In particular, exclude code. The canonical example for me is probably JSON.

Looks like there is some famous quote I am ignorant about!

@Konrad Hinsen Yes, I realized this halfway through our exchange. Sorry! I try not to assume cultural references, but somehow this one got through. See the first paragraph at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_Rules:_An_Eater%27s_Manual
