Sorry for the late reply. I only just realized we had a Developers Forum
. I've been wanting one for years but for some reason I only just spotted this existed.
I've been involved in a couple of CMS projects for two different companies. We did review Microsoft CMS but didn't go with. We decided against it because it seemed more like a platform than an out-of-the-box solution. I am currentl dealing with this pain in the ass called Vignette.
I'm not suprised to hear MS using tables for everything. Even Visual Studio still does that, especially 2003. Ever trying running FxCop on Visual Studio generated code? You will discover that Microsofts tools generate code that fails their own tests. And yeah it loves to capitalize half your HTML and remove the quotation marks are parameter values - BAD Microsoft! BAD! NO COOKIE 4 U!
