Default Legacy Pages Out There

Google has a big study on web page code, with a great deal of detail. I have not read much of it yet, but I will.

I found this study from here. This smaller study does have interesting statistics.

My own perception is that there is a great deal of HTML 4.01 out there which has never been upgraded. Also, many web sites do not specify a DOCTYPE. Of those that do, only a few validate with the www.w3c.org validation service. The only large web site that I have found that validates as XHTML is the W3C site itself. Doubtless there are others.
