Web Authoring Tools Report
April 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 March survey is based on a sample size of 6,546,230 pages downloaded from 873,061 sites. We detected authoring tool usage on 254,139 sites (29.11% of all sites visited).
