I would not dream of calling myself a Web Developer, but over the years
I have created and maintained various websites. I always use Lua for
this. The reason lies in Lua's origins as a data-description language.
I keep the content-database for a site as textfiles containing, in Lua
format, lists of labelled records. The visual furniture of the site
is kept quite separately in libraries of Lua functions and CSS.
I find the Lua format for labelled records easier on the eye and less
verbose than xml.
