Web Authoring Tools Report
January 1st, 2003

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 December survey is based on a sample size of 7,108,750 pages downloaded from 862,308 sites. We detected authoring tool usage on 208,569 sites (24.19% of all sites visited).
