    Looking for a CMS thats open source and W3c compliant?

    Does anyone know of a CMS system that is open source and W3C compliant? I'm trialing ATutor and Joomla just wondered what there is available? I've got moodle setup as a VLE too but I just need a basic CMS system to allow staff to update departmental section of our website?

    Any suggestions?

    I'm running Website Baker for our school site. Most pages validate (there's a button a the bottom of each page). Some modules insert <style> tags in the middle of the page, but as it's open source it's not difficult to move these to your template's CSS file. (Or, place them in /<module_name>/style.css, and have the template check for the existance of the file). Most of the ready-made templates validate as well, but you can obviously change these as you see fit.

    As far as updating is concerned, I've found an HTML filter (like Textile or Markdown) works best instead of WYSIWYG. Basically, it lets you edit pages in a Wiki or BBCode -style editor, and it converts the markup to valid (X)HTML for you. Let me know if you'd like a demo of how ours is set up.

    I don't know if people are still looking at this but Joomla isn't 100% W3C compliant. There are a variety of issues with it that I have found (you can work around them if you are careful).

    I don't know how good the 1.5 series is though, as it is still unstable so I haven't looked into it yet.
