No, html is the only language for making a webpage. Languages like asp and php are called serverside programming languages, and are used to output varying html based on arguments and tests. Asp and php are used to make a site dynamic and interactive, so the site changes depending on what the user does with his mouse/keyboard. This forum for example is written in php, meaning php is used to process, write and store in a database the things we write in here. If you look at the source of this page, it's still html you'll see, because the php code is taken out of the document after being transformed on the server.

Well, you could also create an XML document and style it with CSS to get an HTML like view and use XLink it it to mimic HTML links.You can also use SVG with or without CSS to get a Flash like view.And no. Unlike Flash, SVG doesn't need to be called from an <object> element or anything, though it could be.

if your site is Flash site so your site will be http://something.swf , no HTML and even noone see your source code because it not existproblem here is do you want your site ending with .swf extension :)
Actually it will be http://something.com/something.swf :).In order to serve the file as an index file (that is- no need to explicitly point to the file), you do the same thing as you do for other file types: you set the server to use this file as an index:
DirecotryIndex something.swf something.xml something.svg something.php something.htm something.html

Yes it's possible, like Boen Robot says you can use xml, xml allows you to create your own tags, then to display them you can use css.xml code starts with:
<?xml version=“1.0”?>

Ahh here we go, an example :)http://www.w3schools.com/xml/cd_catalog_with_css.xmlTo see the xml view sourceTo see the css: http://www.w3schools.com/xml/cd_catalog.css

Yes, that is right i saw the page and the source code.But why in the introduction at xml section in the w3schools says:XML is not a replacement for HTML :)http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_whatis.aspyou will found this in main differences :) thanks,
It is important to understand that XML is not a replacement for HTML. In future Web development it is most likely that XML will be used to describe the data, while HTML will be used to format and display the same data.
SoXML = the storage of dateXSL = display XML as HTMLThe XML data is displayed with HTML tags - separating content and display.
