Is that possible? Without tweaking, ASP.NET is not standards compliant (XHTML at least, HTML 4 output is compliant I think). Hopefully ASP.NET 2 will be though. Semantics is up to the developer though, ASP.NET cannot make semantic code. That is something a computer would never be able to do (as they are a human invention and only do what they are programmed to - GIGO). If they were intelligent, 'I, Robot' may become reality.

Don't use forums much, just watch RSS/Atom feeds and use Google Groups instead.
