Fwd'd since the materials from Google are interesting.

Aside: For those not following  this stuff, WhatWG is Ian Hixie and some 
browser-maker friends (many ex-Mozilla or Mozilla) who are working 
up some non-XML-centric proposals for a revision of the HTML spec. 
Some of their work was submitted to W3C, see submission at 
http://www.w3.org/Submission/2005/02/Comment

The Google page looks interesting, though I've not delved deep into 
it yet.

We can now add to this data. In December 2005 we did an analysis of a
sample of slightly over a billion documents, extracting information
about popular class names, elements, attributes, and related metadata.
The results we found are available below.

http://code.google.com/webstats/2005-12/linkrels.html (hmm seems to 
use Flash, ah no it's SVG :) has info on link rel/rev values found in the public web. 
There's also (see Ian's comments below) some stuff relevant to 
our Creative Commons in RDF use case, ie. talk of a <copyright> element.

All I have to do now is figure out why I can't get the SVG to 
display...

Google recently published some (not-very-scientific) research which 
people on this list will probably find interesting:

   http://code.google.com/webstats/index.html

I plan to use this data to guide the development of HTML5. In particular, 
we probably need a <copyright> element. I was glad to see that most of 
what we've been working on in HTML5 is justified by this research -- for 
example the <header> and <footer> elements.
