Web Authoring Tools Report
August 1st, 2001

The following tables illustrates the usage of web authoring tools on the web. The tool is determined by examining the web page meta tag 'generator'. Readers are cautioned that not all authoring packages insert their name in this meta tag, and as such may not be picked up in this survey.

The July survey is based on a sample size of 641,032 pages downloaded from 62,016 sites. We detected authoring tool usage on 17,579 sites (28.35% of all sites visited).
