If you are "cutting-and-pasting" text from a word processor (such as Microsoft Word) be aware that the "pasted" text may not be an exact representation of the "cut" text. This is because word processing programs may contain software specific codes that may be interpreted differently outside of the program in which they were created. Double and single quotes are examples of characters that often do not translate properly when taken outside of their original word processer.
To avoid this problem, you can use one of two different approaches:
- Save the file as "plain text". For example, when in Microsoft Word, go to File - Save As. Choose "text only" from the drop down menu located by the title "Save As Type" This will save your file with a .txt extension (e.g. mymessage.txt). Open your .txt file to "cut" the text and then "paste" it into your web page.
- Copy all the text and paste it into the Microsoft Notepad applicaiton. Then, copy if from notepate and paste it into your web page.
