Is it due to a flaw in HTML that it is difficult to build authoring tools, such as WYSIWYG editors, that generate markup rich in semantics, embody best-practices and can be easily used by non-technical people? Since much of the content on the Web is created using such authoring tools, can we ever achieve a semantically rich and accessible Web?
