My understanding is that MS CMS relies a lot on MS Office and Frontpage
(and Sharepoint) so I would say the odds of it producing semantic,
accessible markup to not be terribly high. :|

BUT...I haven't used MS CMS, so maybe someone with direct experience can
chime in. We did look at Sharepoint for our intranet, but after taking
the training course, we realized it was an overpriced, overly complex,
feature-poor application. (IMHO, of course)
