    You mention similarity to PHP already, but you may not know that in 1999 PHP supported <script language="php"></script> too! I’m not sure if PHP still does.

      ASP had runat="server".

        Thankfully that was removed in the 7-series. Possibly 7.0.0?

        I’ve never liked this idea of abusing HTML tags and embedding another language into your page (with the exception of the <script> tag). It feels like a step backwards :D

            Maybe the goal is to have fun :-)

            My pet project does it better. Specifically, it allows you to pipe any element identifiable with a CSS selector through any external program, and pass any attributes to that program.

            Not arguing that Deno is a great project though, I’m planning to use it myself for some scripts.
