Hi David,

I'm a 100% ASP.NET person *and* a standards advocate.

I present regularly on this topic to ASP.NET developers. Here's a recording of one of my talks, "Building Great Standards-Based Websites for the Big Wide World with Microsoft ASP.NET 4": http://live.visitmix.com/MIX10/Sessions/EX20

If you have people working on ASP.NET and having issues with standards, point them in the direction of that talk or feel free to forward any queries/issues to me. I'm more than happy to assist *anyone* in producing a standards compliant experience with ASP.NET.

Finally, you should be aware that ASP.NET now comes in two flavours - ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC. The latter gives developers 100% control over the markup and the messaging and training around it come with a standards angle.

Because I keep seeing people having this problem. Everything I've heard suggests that it is a system that you have to fight for control over your markup.
