The Microsoft Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Team Blog has a wealth of information regarding Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007.

One interesting thread is a three part seriies on Building a Real World Extranet Application with MOSS 2007, of which the first two parts have been posted. It is written by real work SharePoint MPV Shane Perran and lead architect Jared Rypkema.

Part 1 sets the stage in how to organize the site and defining the content types. The comments to the posting point to other articles that provide additional information as well.

Part 2 describes site and content customization (site branding), howto create custom pages, and how to separate the presentation.
