Sharepoint 2007 is not XHTML compliant or Accessible

Currently working in a role where I’m supporting the XHTML integration of static designs into Sharepoint 2007 via .Net user controls.
The project aspires to produce XHTML 1.1 Strict compliant code that adheres to WCAG AAA accessibility guidelines.

Unfortunatley the good folks at Microsoft have not co-operated and we are therefore working to overload, hack and modify the standard outputs. I’ll post some detailed examples over the coming days and some of the solutions we’ve implemented.

Andrew Lister and Riaz Ahmed  (both of LBI ) gave an interesting presentation at the recent Sharepoint user group meeting in London where they demonstrated how they tackled similar issues.
