I have used Ektron's eWebEditPro - it produces valid XHTML and also is 
highly customisable.

At the end of the day, as James has pointed out it is very easy for a 
user to make a mess of things thus breaking any Accessibility 
standards.

I chose the Ektron product because it has superb filtering of the mess 
from MS Word pasted content and I can customise the interface so that I 
can restrict and control the tools the users can use.  So now they 
cannot add an image without providing alt text, they cannot add a link 
without title text, they cannot change colours, font sizes, etc, they 
can only apply one of a set of pre-defined styles, etc.

Cheers,
