Software for web pages?

Is there any way in IE 6 to tell what software has been used to produce web pages?

Don't think so but if you right click the page then on view source you can then look in the meta tags to see if there's any mention of it there.

Some software puts it in, others don't.

by default, but there's an option to disable that before you publish your site.

Most mianstream software includes its ID by default.

Dreamweaver gives itself away if you use templates on your pages or if you used the layout tools for creating tables and cells.

The layout tools leave telltale tags like this:

<!--DWLayoutTable-->

<!--DWLayoutEmptyCell-->

If you use any of Dreamweavers code behaviours it embeds a giveaway MM_ tag that includes other elements of the script being called.

NetObjects, Namo Web Editor, Adobe GoLive and most other editors also include a metatag at the head of the page code identifying the parent program, although you can turn this off in most programs or manually clean it up if it bothers you at all.

The other day I saw a page with a metatag identifying Notepad. The site was quite complicated and I felt that the author wanted us to know that he'd done it all himself :-)
