Whenever you need to copy and paste content (text and tables only, no images or multiple text boxes) from any source into your site, use one or more of the following methods (the first being the best):
All of these methods are intended to scrub the content of any non-standard code that may interfere with the page's proper operation. The code used by various programs to format content is not always compatible with the HTML standards, thus the need to remove most if not all of it before pasting it into your site.
Once you have the content in your page, you can use the editor tools to reformat the content in the best way possible for the Web.
This will ensure that you have clean, unformatted, HTML-friendly content on your page. Using a few simple steps now will prevent a great deal of frustration later.
