Pasting multilingual Word docs with "Paste Word" and WLW? (1 post)

    I've used both the "Paste word" button & WLW to paste Word into my blog. However I occasionally use Greek & Hebrew words in my docs which don't display properly when pasted. I just need them to be displayed not translated (perhaps embedded?).
    Its odd because after clicking on the "Paste Word" button & pasting the text into the pop up window, the Heb/Grk is properly displayed. Yet once I insert the text into the WP editor the Heb/Grk is displayed as random English letters. Apparently the WP can't read the fonts.
    The result is the same when pasting and posting from WLW. However, I noticed that if I use "paste special" instead of "paste" the Heb/Grk display properly in my post.
    Any solutions? Does the "paste special" include the extraneous Word code I'm trying to avoid? My blog is new so I don't wan't to create issues for the future.
