Pasting Text from Other Sources

To preserve the integrity of page display across all computer configurations, you should observe HTML conventions when formatting a document. If you use the XHTML Editor to format text typed directly into the editor, your content should always be valid XHTML.

When text is copied and pasted from other sources, noncompliant formatting can slip into the page. To avoid this complication, the XHTML editor provides paste options that strip unwanted formatting.
