Worldwide, regarding HTML, I'm sure there is 100 times more regular
expression processing code than full-on lexing code.  Most code that
processes HTML is embedded in scripts, doing some small special-purpose
operation.  Those regular expressions aren't going away.  Helping them
break less is a noble cause.
