If you conduct a search on the Web for the number of languages spoken around the world, you’ll see numbers ranging anywhere from 6,000-7,000. I figure I’m doing okay since I can speak English and Spanish, sign the English alphabet, recite the Greek alphabet, and read music. There are roughly over 1.2 billion web sites on the Internet, yet, a large majority of those sites share the same programming language.
