            Why are there strange characters on my page when I paste from MS Word?

            Synopsis
            You want to know why there are strange characters on your web page when you copy and paste from   MS Word .

            Solution
            This is an MS Word issue that happens when you copy and paste from MS Word into the Editor.  MS Word adds some invalid characters to the clipboard, and it shows up as invalid characters in the page. You need to follow these steps:  
            1. Select and copy the text from an   MS Word   document.
            2. Place the cursor in the website page editor. 
            3. Press the 'Paste from Word' icon located in the editor toolbar. 

            When possible, enter text directly into the editor rather than pasting form other sources like   Word . You will get better results. If you do need to paste from other sources, first paste the content in a basic Notepad editor. THEN copy that text and paste into the website editor, and *then* apply fonts and formats from within the editor. Pasting and copying from Notepad removes extraneous formatting from the original source.
