I agree. Cost does not equal performance. Some of the most expensive
stuff doesn't hold a candle to quick and cheap (or free) stuff that's
good. Sadly, open source is not the standard in most industries due to
the misconception that it is not widely supported.

Current beef: Red Dot CMS has a typical "paste from word" function in
it's wysiwyg editor that effectively strips out MSO tags, but adds
inline styles and extra span containers. The free TinyMCE editor that
WordPress uses strips all Word formatting and preserves only the
structures, including lists.

Sigh.
