Apple's iWeb produces dodgy mark-up

Colin Devroe has put up a test page he produced using Apple's new iWeb.

Check out the generated source code.

DIVs all over the shop. Semantics out the window (div class="paragraph" being an almost textbook example of how not to do it, as businessLogs points out). What's the point in having a (largly nonsensical) external css file when most of your mark-up is taken up with style attributes?

The template doesn't exactly blow me out of the water either. Just goes to show that a page that validates is not even half of the story.
