I often type my posts in Microsoft Word and then copy/paste them into my blog here. It can be done, but one must take care. If you paste using the “Visual” tab the formatting codes will be included in the text. That creates problems for people who visit your blog using IE. The pages will stop loading at the point of the formatting. (Strangely, Firefox and Chrome handle the Microsoft Word formatting codes and Microsoft Internet Explorer doesn’t!) Things look fine as you paste, but if you switch to the HTML Tab you’ll see the formatting codes. That’s what you see in the example below. I typed some text using Microsoft Word, then pasted it into the blog using the “Visual”tab. Then, switched to the HTML tab. You can see the format codes.
My solution is to always paste into the HTML Tab. Once it’s pasted in you can switch back to “Visual” and format the text as you like. Do you have a better solution you can share?Microsoft Word, tips
