Respectful Insolence

Lemming-like, I follow

OK, PZ, Grrlscientist, and John have all done it. They’ve used a cool little applet to show their blogs as graphs.

I figured I’d give it a try, too. Why not?

(Click on the image to see the graph construct itself.)

Basically, the applet shows the tree structure of a web page in a rather interesting way.

The key is below:

blue: for links (the A tag)
red: for tables (TABLE, TR and TD tags)
green: for the DIV tag
violet: for images (the IMG tag)
yellow: for forms (FORM, INPUT, TEXTAREA, SELECT and OPTION tags)
orange: for linebreaks and blockquotes (BR, P, and BLOCKQUOTE tags)
black: the HTML tag, the root node
gray: all other tags
