@I imported into a DW page from a Word document and the DW inserted strange hyphens in long rows. Why did this happen?

Word files almost never copy/paste to an html editor cleanly.

When pasting in DW, right click and choose Paste Special > Text Only (or possibly Text with Structure) to avoid most of the MS-generated gibberish.

Hi Jon,

Since you answer a lot more questions here than I do, you might want to research the Save as "Filtered" option in Word, which will clean up the markup before you copy it. It works great. After saving a filtered copy of the file, you do your copy and paste task.
