Incredibly small issue - the CMS creates paragraphs using <p align="left|right|center|justify">, but this is deprecated when trying to be HTML4.01 valid. The workaround is to either use a CSS file, or to write something like <p style="text-align:left;">.

I only started using silverstripe today - am quite impressed with the ease of developing a new website with a modified template.

You're absolutely right Jonothan. This paragraph alignment is part of TinyMCE, the open source WYSIWYG editor we use in the SilverStripe CMS.

TinyMCE is quite customizable, so it may just be a matter of turning this 'outdated' feature off.
