Tip: Avoid MS Word garbage in your blog post text

12 Sep 2008

It is VERY bad to copy and paste from MS Word into the blog Post field — if you are in “Visual” view in that field.

Switch to “HTML” view — and then paste. This way you will avoid carrying over a bunch of bloated, foul MS Word formatting code, which will really mess up the way your blog text looks.

The Visual and HTML views are controlled by two tabs at the upper right corner of the Post field in WordPress.
