  "One conclusion one can draw from the spread of attributes used on the
  body element is that authors don't care about what the specifications
  say. Of these top twenty attributes, nine are completely invalid, and
  five have been deprecated for nearly eight years, half the lifetime of
  the Web so far." -

  "There really is no reason for using language these days. It's been
  deprecated since forever, and quite obviously a lot of people can't
  spell it." - http://code.google.com/webstats/2005-12/scripting.html

  "Typos were quite common; the td element, for example, had more pages
  with widht, witdh, aling, valing, with, and heigth attributes than it
  had pages with headers attributes." -
