Text not displaying (only header/sidebar) in IE (2 posts)

    I got an email from a reader of my blog this morning, saying he could see the text of some articles but not others. I determined that the problem exists only in IE - Firefox shows all articles normally.

    I tried switching from the InSense theme to Atahualpa, then K2, which are much more robust and standard, but no, the problem doesn't go away - some posts still show the article text but others don't.

    Does anyone have a solution for this? Thanks.

    P.S. The text is there - it shows up when I view the page source. But IE doesn't display it.

    AHA. Fixed it - seems WordPress doesn't like text pasted in the .docx format of Word 2007 and later. Easily fixed, however -- (a) go to Manage > Posts and open the text in HTML format, then remove the commented code at the top of the file, between the "<--" and "-->" comment indicators. It's still okay to save your Word text in the old .doc format (Word 97 to XP) and paste it using the WordPress "Kitchen Sink" button (on the Write Post toolbar) then the Paste from Word button.
