Yes, standards vary enormously.
Content competence should be taught in schools and universities. I mentioned this recently to the principal of Glasgow Uni but he muttered something about it being more appropriate for the adult learning classes. I don't agree.
As you point out, good content is about more than "web writing" - it's about usability, navigation and good design too.

Thanks for your comments. I am surprised to learn that the president of a university thinks that content competence is night-school fare. Does he know how prospective students (of all ages) make choices about where to continue their educations? They are not reading print brochures, that's for sure.
