That figure was from the case of

since that appears to be what Hixie meant (but forgot to say) when
claiming that most uses of rev were typos of rel.

(Case-insensitively, I counted 1259 rev="made", 122 rev="stylesheet",
and 1474 rev="..." in total, which means 215 in total excluding
rev="made", and 122/215=57%.)
