if I had the time and access to available programs, I wonder if making a standard code to use to test the web programming programs would show which make more or less errors under typical use conditions ? well gota run

The only way to do that in a painless way for authors is to collect a
meta name in the headers of files. I suspect you want the compiled
stats on how badly performs some authoring tools, maybe something else.
But the data set will be of poor quality:
- not a huge number of pages with the meta.
- more than one authoring tool involved in the generation of pages
- author changing authoring tool, but forgetting to modify the meta
It will be very hard to have relevant statistics in such open
