Thank you Julian. 

That's very helpful. As you point out, there are many possibilities for
user error, and we are conducting extensive training sessions and
developing procedures to ensure that go as far as we can to ensuring
this happens this.

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,
