The core competence of phpWebSite is managing content. That's why it's called a content management system. There are a couple of guides on how to install phpWS technically and how to work with modules.
Then, there's the actual content. I couldn't find a common practice guide on how to write content for phpWebSite. So I did one on my own. Enjoy!
The most basic thing for writing text is writing paragraphs. A paragraph is a bunch of sentences. Try to have three to five sentences in a paragraph, as a rule of thumb.
Paragraphs are usually separated from each other by an empty line. That's where most errors occur right now: Users simply press enter twice, like they are used from Word, etc.
Right now, content requires a bit of work from your side. Please include paragraphs within the p tag and don't leave empty lines between them. Also, write in a go. Don't do any linebreaks, trust phpWebSite (read: your web browser) to get that right.
<p>This is an example for writing paragraphs. It consists of two paragraphs. They are shown exactly the way you would enter them in phpwebsite</p>
Benefits of this approach
Ok, I must admit, it takes a bit getting used to writing paragraphs this way. Then, it gives you a lot of flexibility. You can exactly specify, how paragraphs look and feel in your stylesheet.
If your company for some weird reason decides, one and a half line between paragraphs look better between them -- no problem, you change one line in your style sheet.
Consider on the other hand the hard line breaks of phpWebSite, which are inserted when you do paragraphs the "conventional" way. You can't do half a <br/>. Even if you could -- you still had to apply it on your whole document.
It could also make sense to style paragraphs differently on different plattforms (handheld, computers, etc.) or in search results.
