Yes, it's mandatory
No, it's optional

While it might be helpful to know some HTML, most of the time, an embedded developer (just as an example) will not need that knowledge, not hone it and, as a result, not be able to use it either way. It's the same for other types of software engineers. There are some rather theoretical architects, there are low-level developers (OS, drivers, etc.), there are desktop application developers and last but not least specialized app developers. Web dev is a nice-to-have, but should they know it? I don't think so and I would never require them to.
