Content Editor Issues in SharePoint 2007

Hi,

I added a content editor webpart..

As I'm mostly copying newsletter from MS word 2007 over to this content editor webpart.

The problem is: after I pasted it into the content editor webpart, the alignment goes off, out of line, and it will appear hideous and I have to make amendments, which created a lot of work.

Any suggestions to make my life easier?

The source content is from MS word.

Hello,

the formatting that Word applies does not gel well with SharePoint and html formatting. As a rule of thumb, paste plain text only and perform the formatting only in SharePoint.

To paste text only from Word into SharePoint 2007 you need to paste into Notepad (or a similar plain text editor) first to strip the Word formatting, then copy from Notepad and paste into SharePoint. Then apply formatting in SharePoint.

It does create a lot of work. If it's any consolation: You are not the only one with that problem. It does get (slightly) better in SharePoint 2010.

cheers, teylyn
