Cannot paste the word "Include" in a Contribute template

We use Contribute CS3 for a number of websites. We just ran into this problem.

We often copy and paste copy directly from Word Docs into Contribute editabel regions within Dreameaver templates.

The site we are editing is a PHP based site with pages named page.php etc...

We were trying to paste a paragraph from Word into Contribute and kept getting the error "You cannot perform this function in this area" in Contribute.

After narrowing it down, we see that we have a repeatable "bug"

You can TYPE the word "INCLUDE" into our an editable region in Contribute CS3 within a Dreamweaver template, but you cannot PASTE the word "INCLUDE" into a Dreamweaver template in an editable region in Contribute.
This is in our PHP site..

We understand the possible reason this is a conflict, but I want to know if anyone else has seen this and if there is a "Setting" we can tweak to get past it... Or can you suggest a workaround.

This is a site a client will maintain. I really really dont want to have to tell them to watch out for the word include...

Hi vidguy,

Under Administrative Settings | Edit Role Settings | Editing, how are the General Editing Restrictions set?

Allow unrestrictive editing is CHECKED

Protect Scripts was CHECKED..
I unchecked it and it didn't help..

Thanks for the reply. I really appreciate any suggestions.
We ahve reported this to Adobe in the hopes of hearing of some workaround...

Sorry...

FWIW, I can replicate the error.  It appears that Contribute is still buggy (not surprised) and there is going to have to be a patch from Adobe.

We have been "corresponding" with Adobe Tech support.. So far it's slow getting replies with their attached PDF files from whereever they are coming from...
