Direct echo in Controller - bad parctice?

I'm quite new to CodeIgniter and have been putting together a very small website which is directly copied from some static PHP that I maintain. Following the tutorial (version 2) and then moving on to the general topics led me to put a few direct echo statements in my default controller in order to attempt to add some CSS, metadata and third party JavaScript to the resulting page's

Everything started to come out in the wrong order. Other MVC tutorials found by Google imply that it is a bad idea for a controller to produce output in this way, and sure enough when I swapped over to using
everything started to work a lot more neatly. Is this the right approach? If so, I think it would be helpful to update the documentation for controllers to make this clear.
