Web Authoring Tools Report
February 1st, 2002

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 January survey is based on a sample size of 6,713,989 pages downloaded from 927,160 sites. We detected authoring tool usage on 272,414 sites (29.38% of all sites visited).
