If you are hardcoding in the template file (.ss) it will be output just as you type it.
If you add javascript into the Content area (WYSIWYG editor) it will be broken i guess.
If you want the JS to be added just below the rest of the text, you must hardcode it inside the <div id="Content" class="typography"> tag.

Other than that please try to explain what you mean with, it does not look the same as the rest.

well if you actually look at the error page link above you would notice what it does,
I will be adding JS for a 3rd level menu but at present i just want the text to look the same and be below the $content part, however it displays in a <p> tag and then moves to the right of the $Content as if it was in a table

as for the insert code bit do you mean like this

<div id="Header">
			<div id="ContentContainer">
			<div id="Banner">
  <div id="Content" class="typography">
			 <p>Please click <a href="javascript:history.go(-1)">here to go back</a> and try again</p>
			<div id="Footer">
