We're perhaps straying a bit OT here, but...

Seems that many CMSes these days are a decade behind in terms of
concepts like semantic markup, accessible markup, CSS-P, and true
separation of content and structure.

Even 'modern' CMSes products like Joomla still have presentation markup
stuck in the DB and intertwined into their own templating engines.

(I have a rather bad opinion of the CMS market space... ;o)
