RE: Content Management Systems

What a timely topic for me! My Department (California Department of
Health Services) is planning to switch to Microsoft CMS Server to
replace our existing site. We're right now in the early design phases.
Although I have NO control over product selection, I may have a chance
to have some input on template design and implementation as it relates
to accessibility.

I welcome any advice on how we can best keep accessibility issues on the
table as we switch to CMS and lessons learned from their own
implementation in a big decentralized organization (300-ish "webmasters"
and the "master" part is used VERY loosely). Any MS-CMS Server
accessibility tips welcome as well.

Online or offline tips, resources, etc are appreciated!
