Updated daily.  Watch the exciting standings!

Aside from JIS-encoded documents which cause nsgmls to complain loudly,
the top violators are Microsoft, in first place with 153 errors on their
home page at http://www.microsoft.com/, and Netscape, in second place with
98 errors on their home page at http://home.netscape.com/.  DTDs please?

Congratulations to Architecture Projects Management Ltd., Digital
Equipment Corporation, INRETS, and UKERNA on their correct use of
the HyperText Markup Language.
