How do developers use HTML?

Hixie's research on HTML use just went up on Code.Google.com . It's really interesting research. For instance, <Title> is more popular than <BR>. Who knew? Lots of interesting information in there. Very useful for those creating browsers and tools like cURL.

Neat. I was planning on doing something similar as a follow on to my post on HTTP Headers.

Wow, the Gtags thing is pretty neat too. I just finished (tonight) implementing something very similar, except built on Exuberant Ctags.

If y'all had released this a week ago you would've saved me some time. ;-)

I was going to e-mail you, but then saw you blogged about it... there are a few errors: "persuit" on the index, and "crowed" on the Editors page.

Other than that, it was a very interesting read. I've been working on a redesign of my website to separate content from presentation; I'll have to look at this again before I release it (and read the HTML docs carefully).

FYI, Opera also supports SVG.

I'm surprised that Ian Hickson didn't have Opera also mentioned on that Google page, after all he worked at Opera until a few months ago.
