When I invested a considerable sum of money to design & build a custom WordPress blog, there was an embedded filter that could import MS Word content. Now there seems to be none. Wordpad is a LAME alternative at best that requires a serious amount of html coding on the part of users. Most writers (and I mean at least 95%) use MS Word despite its HTML faults. I realize MS Word creates non-standard code, but why not write a filter to deal with it? (I would pay a reasonable sum for it.) This has been a serious problem for me and perhaps many others both from admin cost, downtime, and productivity loss standpoint. I could not in any way recommend WordPress until you resolve this problem. Please explain.
