I have a gallery page that has_many gallery images as below


static $has_many = array(
'GalleryImages' => 'GalleryImage'

And on the gallery page I making a check that if there are GalleryPages existing then use the control gallery to render into a unordered list.

However when SS interprets the logic below (Code for rendering image stripped for testing) in

<% if GalleryImages %>

say hi

<% end_if %>

I get an this unexplained hyphen appearing at the start of the HTML output which means the page gets no styling in IE,

-<!doctype html>

I have tried other conditional checks for in the if and the HTML renders as expected.

But at loss as to whether I am doing something wrong or if this is a bug. But also have the same problem when using

<% control GalleyImages %>

Any help would be much appreciated.

I am also using dataobject_manager if that helps
