This is a common problem between Word and Dreamweaver. Word's interpretation of HTML is very different from Dreamweaver's. Dreamweaver expects to understand the HTML code it finds on the Clipboard when you do a paste. But Word's version of HTML is not the same. Try opening Dreamweaver, selecting Edit->Preferences->New Document and checking the item 'Make Document XHTML Compliant'.


Thanks it worked
