Right I forgot about that. Yeah..*chuckling*...I could of used that the
other day, oh well.

The original HTML had lots of lines with the construct -
<div style="margin-left: 40px;"> ..... </div>

This is bad anyway.

SilverStripe does not like this, it will keep it and display the file
properyly, but it can't edit that in the GUI so what I've been doing is
replacing that with:

<p style="padding-left: 30px;"> ..... </p>

This ain't much better really, keeping stuff manually styles is a pain
in the ass, and this will in effect prevent you from changing the
visual appearance, to change the css, at least it will result in
*MUCH* additional work.

Maybe not but it is what Silverstripe uses if you indent a block of if I switch from the earlier construct to this, then I can see
the file as it was first (less 10px indent) laid up and use SS editor to
change it - the other way, nope. 

Bottom line, for the moment - there are few palces in a few files left
that you just can't edit in the CMS GUI editor or do so at risk, cause
they have little hidden bombs, touch one and the page is reformatted to
something unusable. Perhaps you don't believe that..but it's true.

So bottom line for me, right now, is to get all the files where they are
liked by silverstripe and then move on from there, which means having
Tim and Marc and myself editing the pages under SilverStripe, with no
hidden surprises. Right now I'm working on the Extras page, then I'll
jump to Documentation and I think at that point all the really nasty
stuff is gone..

As for a theme - I do have one question (request)

Currently the file name is displayed as the top line of a page, 

For example:

Displays the file name (least I think it is the file nameg) as the first
line, can we turn that off or will we need to create a new theme to do
so - not a big deal today, but soon.

Best wishes,
