Because it merely a *markup language* without any logic. You can write anything you want and the browser engine will try its best to render the web page without any complain.

Because it doesnt have a functional purpose like programming languages generally have. E.g. you cant do maths, there is no expression logic, etc... This article goes into detail: https://ischool.syr.edu/infospace/2012/04/05/why-html-is-not-a-programming-language/
