The Problem With Full Stack Bookmark

There has been a lot of talk about HTML & CSS recently. It's easy! Both languages aren't getting the full recognition they deserve. Many times they are belittled, yet so difficult to truly master. This article by Heydon Pickering is spot on and hits home so many times. Recommended reading.
