I'd love to find *any* authoring tool that generates accessible and
interoperable web pages (basically meaning "valid HTML4 Strict with semantic
markup where presentational  can be avoided, and no dependance on other
technologies"). So far I've found only one authoring tool that comes rather
close (but with the many hundreds of tools out there, many of them expensive
and/or relying on environments not available to me, I obviously haven't been
able to try more than a few).

But I love surprises! ;) If you can show me one Microsoft authoring tool that
generates accessible and interoperable web pages, I promise you I'll raise
the flag and have trumpets blowing at the WRI site :)

I know. But Opera doesn't produce authoring tools. Microsoft does. You're
therefore in a far better position to improve the quality of what is thrown
at UAs.
