you count basic HTML as programming - which I don't.

regarded as good programming in my youth, no longer is. In the early days, the
all powerful god was compact programming. That was when every last byte
counted. These days with megabytes of memory, it's more a case of
maintainability. I'm just way out of date! I haven't done any programming
since getting a PC (unless you count writing somewhat complex DOS batch files).
My expertise was with the Z80 processor back in the days of CP/M!
