My guess is around 0.01%, probably less. Then again valid may mean
Doctype transitional, which is deprecated. So that wouldn't be really
good either.

This is dated 2001:
http://www.ub.uib.no/elpub/2001/h/413001/

The PDF file is 6 MB! It suggests that 0.7% of web pages validate at W3C as
they are. If the ones without a DOCYPE are given a Transitional DOCTYPE, then
2.6% validate at W3C.
