Hi folks:

I've been looking at the various Indy CMS packages out there as a part
of a programing project I'm working on, and its lead me to a question:

Does any CMS now in use at the present produce "valid" html or xhtml code?

A practical test of this is to see if the home page of the site can pass
the w3c validator found here without generating any error messages:

for "bonus" points see if a newswire story will also pass


(1) front page: gets just one error:

required attribute "alt" not specified. Front Page"><img src="imc.png" /> <span style="vertical-ali...

provided that it's first filtered through these two ampersand escaping hacks:

| sed -e 's/\&feed/\&amp;feed/g' |sed -e 's/\& IMC Docs/\&amp; IMC Docs/g'

(2) an article:

This has just one error - the same "required attribute "alt" not specified."

as of yet I have found no site that does this, but I'd be interested in
seeing one that does if anyone can find one...

i expect these will be easy to fix in time for samizdat 0.6.0...
