The look and feel is predefined by the designer. You then only
characterize the content which adopts automatically the predefined
styles. Cmsbox was created to manage CONTENT not STYLE as we address a
specific, non-technical target group. Therefore you cannot change styles

HTML5 was created with some new semantic tags such as article, sections,
... We anticipated this development by introducing "Articles" which keep
the content semantically together which is also the basis for good SEO.
Besides, yes, you really need for each paragraph a new text element as
this allows us to create semantically and standard compliant HTML code
which is on of the main goals. Each element at the represents an HTML
tag or set of tags at the end.
Hint: You should not want to format content but to adjust its function.
Each element has therefore properties which are always context-sensitive
within the black toolbar on the righten side.
Hint2: Use the element "Table" for the links to the Shops at
http://www.pharo-project.org/community/shop. Besides, link can have a
description and a link action. You do not need to show the whole link
within the content again if you do not want too.

Of course, Tiki Wiki and Cmsbox do not have anything in common beside
the content management goal. This is due to the target group which is
completely different. I would not want to explain wiki syntax to the
secretary of a Swiss carpenter. ;)

+1. An example using Responsive Design would even be better as Stef
tends to force mobile devices.

+100. If the community accepts your proposal we would love to adopt the
styles to new design. We are programmers and therefore dependant on
designers input... but if we get it, we can do almost everything your
