Programing language, design, js/dom issue: when coding web, lots things are in string. e.g. HTML attributes. This is a major programing pain. Figure out, make a logical statement, what exactly is the problem. Find the article i may have written on this.
The problem apparently is that values are strings. Imagine a programing language, where all values must be strings. No int, no float, no num, all strings.
the string problem is particularly pronounced when you have CSS 2D Transform functions [see CSS: 2D Transform] and SVG coord Transformation [see SVG: Coordinate Transformation]
i think this answers a long time question i have on symbolic languages (Mathematica, lisp).
programing language can either be symbolic or not. there is no in-between.
One use of symbolic lang is that it allows syntactic transformation (via symbolic pattern matching. e.g. lisp macro do a bit)
What's other use?
