The folks who developed the Opera browser searched the WWW to
gather statistics about the percentage of web sites that adhere
to the W3C standards for HTML and XML.  They found that only 4.13%
of the sites are standards compliant.  Even more discouraging that
of those sites that have a logo claiming to comply with W3C
standards, only 50% were actually compliant.  See    (01)

This should be a cautionary point for anybody who is proposing
to develop or use standards for ontology.  Since a single
discrepancy can cause a theorem prover to collapse into
contradiction, it is important to design systems to expect
discrepancies.    (03)
