Do they all provide validated code?
I've only used Drupal from that lot & have been very impressed by it. In fact I'm trying to work a solution around it where I can just hand a cd and a few simple instructions to friends (who just "want a website" but have no clue what it will contain).
Would be very interested to hear some feedback from Smiley Cat readers :)

Well I'm not that good in PHP programming, and it took me a while to get used to CMS Made Simple. Now I got a got hand on it, and every time I check on how are made other well rated CMS I find them so differente one from other that I'm completly discourage to switch.
Any way, like mattyod, I would be very interested to hear some feedback from someone who's good at programming, and who has really experienced programming with all of them.
Good one people !

While I can't comment on these ones in particular, creating valid code has become more of a standard in modern CMS's. I wouldn't be surprised if these were XHTML 1.0 compliant.
Of course, there's a difference between creating valid code and creating good code — there's not much point in having code that validates if it is chock full of unnecessary divs and classes.

Having used Jomla, I must say that I have been impressed not only by the power of the product but, very importantly, the user community that exists around the product. With a huge range of add-ons, Joomla has proved to be a very powerful CMS.

I've used Joomla/Mambo quite a few times, and I liked it at first, but then proved to be a headache with customizing. I was also told that the security on it was very vulnerable.
Plone is a great tool but takes alot of getting used to.
