Paste from Word

Select this icon to paste a copy of information from Microsoft Word into the editor window. In order to retain an exact replica of a Microsoft Word document, Microsoft generates a significant amount of code unnecessary for retaining the basic formatting used in World Wide Web documents. Because the additional code overrides your web site style settings and can cause unexpected results you should always use the Paste from Word feature when copying information from Microsoft Word into your web site. This feature is a best effort attempt at removing all unnecessary code, but we cannot guarantee all Microsoft code will be removed.
