The reality, however, is that it is hard to find a good CMS that writes valid XHTML (or even HTML) while also delivering WYSIWYG editing for non-technical users.
Sure, there is MovableType, TextPattern, WordPress, and a few others on the unix platform, but on the Windows platform, I haven’t found one.
Most CMS systems built for a Windows server platform make use of the contentEditable feature built into IE (also known as MSHTML), which writes code about as good as FrontPage 98.
Never the less, great article on seperating content and presentation in CMSs. I know at work I am slowing working through some of our CMS systems that make use of FONT and TABLE elements.
