The last time Jeffrey and myself discussed this whole aspect of what makes a CMS worthwhile was at We05 back in September when we were still Mamboing. Recommendations were taken on board in early 2005 (before we05) and I do believe the other CMS has now dropped the ball in this regard, so all the collective knowledge now resides here..
just thought i would bring up the issues I had a few months ago, seems good that things have moved on
since then I have been looking at the compass designs tutorial and used various extras like extmenu and rd sitemap
I think you can build a pretty accessible site with joomla, just shame about the tables in the main body items, well heres waiting for version 1.2
been building a site over at http://www.filmworkshop.com/newsite/ (may go to the http://www.filmworkshop.com/ next week though and be live) and reasonably happy with some of the accessible design using css. Yet to implement a stylesheet switcher though such as invasion of the body switchers from http://www.allthatmalarkey.co.uk/ and develop the print and accessible alternative css. also a little worried that I am using css diplay:none to hide the jump to nav and jump to content links, does anyone have any suggestions if this causes problems (e.g. is it better to use a large negative margin instead)
