Web Authoring Tools Report
November 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 October survey is based on a sample size of 676,076 pages downloaded from 120,310 sites. We detected authoring tool usage on 36,322 sites (30.19% of all sites visited).
