I was looking at the layout CSS for the CMS server and was wondering why the
wrapped text seems to be hidden on the right hand side of the paragraph.

No. Text is hidden, because the content part in the theme is just
defined to be the area in the BgContainer.

I was wondering if there was a fix that could be used so NA site that is
being built on the CMS server, now on the site, so there
would not be any hidden text issues.

Yes: Don't force the text/elements to be wider as the available area.
Remove your hard formatting.

The table work was to deal with some alignment issues, but not it is being
rebuilt to the CMS server specs.

Trying to do alignment with tables is bad. Better use appropriate css
styles on semantic elements. Only use a table when what you have is
actually tabular data.

Is there a way that the right site of the page would auto wrap so there is
no hidden text?

Again: If you tell "This element is 780pixels wide", but there is only
room for 600pixels, you're forcing the text to not wrap. Get rid of
your manually defined styles, especially the fixed-width

Start with semantic html, i.e. what the job of the element is, and
then work on the layout, not the other way round.

I want the pages to be the best looking pages that can be done using the CMS
server CSS.

Well - you can use your own style="..." tags in the html, those are
not stripped.
And furthermore the CSS is not by the CMS, it was created by us, so
when the CSS is lacking/needs some more styles, those can be added of

But using hard formatting is very, very bad.

And don't just create divs because you want to indent a paragraph,
just specify that indent on the paragraph for example. Just because
the CMS is configured to allow manually specified styles doesn't mean
that all manually specified styles make sense.
