My latest fave is websitebaker.com, imho one of the easiest admin
interfaces for the end user/client, easy-peasy templating, privilege
levels, news blocks, can be made to match almost any existing web site.
Fairly easy to get valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional code using a slightly
customized wysiwyg FCKeditor:

Just last week I moved the site above from a TP back-end to WB, it's
about the fifth install I've done of this appy, the clients love it. I
*am* a Textpattern fan still, but the Baker is a nice middle ground
between complexity for the end user and flexibility for the developer,
imho of course :-)
