I just got an interesting glitch when trying to access the iOS app store. I really don't know how I will go about posting an image of it, because this iPod touch is my only way to browse the web right now, but it basically showed me a very HTML looking page stating that my apps were up to date. This was inside the app store app. So, is the app store just a website?
Edit: here's a screenshot I took of it:

The iOS App Store is not a website, but the way it grabs it's information is from various HTML files generated for the user. Sometimes when something goes wrong with the code, the App Store thinks "OMG! a web page!" and then loads it in a plain text format.
