I, professional Web developer, will not comment on that :)

This is a common mistake and it has been repeated twice in your posting (so 
it is unlikely to be a typo).   Therefore, allow me to "nitpick" on it 

It is _HTML_ (HyperText Markup Language), _CSS_ (Cascading Style-Sheets) and 
_JavaScript_¹ (not an acronym).

Why you would write those three names in all-lowercase, but not “sql” (which 
would equally be wrong since it is an abbreviation for “Structured Query 
Language”) is truly beyond me.  How did you get this idea?

¹  Contrary to popular belief, “JavaScript” does not encompass only one
   programming language, and there are ECMAScript implementations (in
   Web browsers and elsewhere) that did not, and marketing aside, still
   do not, contain the “JavaScript” trademark.
