Breaking news: HTML+CSS is Turing complete

A programming language is Turing complete if it equivalent to a Turing machine. In practice, it means that any algorithm can be implemented. Most programming languages are Turing complete, including SQL, ECMAScript, Java, C, and so on.

HTML5 + CSS3 is also Turing complete because it can be used to program a Rule 110 automaton.
