    Are you copying from Word or another formatted text source? That would do it.

    Converted the normal article into HTML characters using software

    Using what software??

    Where are you putting it? (visual or text editor)? Does the same thing happen if you type the HTML directly in the dashboard editor?

    Well I don't know that software because that was provided to me by my client. Obviously, I'm copying that in text editor and when I click on visual it will take all its original characters but when I publish it, then it is showing garbage. What do you mean by Dashboard editor?? just make a note that I'm not using any plugin. On another hand, I have checked some of my other website they are fine and taking html characters.

    I have noticed one thing i.e. if I copy all the html characters in the HTML and without clicking on visual, if I'm publishing then it is taking perfectly. If I click on visual then moving on to pblishing way then its compeltely garbage... Its very important for me to click on visual because I need to adjust images/links in that...

    Does the garbage persist when using a text editor like Notepad?

    If you are switching between the visual and text editors, that will cause problems - it's a known problem. Try saving the post in the one editor and then switching after saving it first. See if that works.

    And please do not bump here - it's not allowed per the forum guidelines: http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#No_Bumping

    I didn't get you.. What do you mean by saving post in one editor?

    I have tried to make the whole post in different website (like bravenet.com) and take its whole coding and paste in the WP html. Didn't worked!!!

    I have some more wordpress websites they are perfectly working fine without anything...

    Do not switch between the visual and text editor. Use one, save/publish, then use the other to make any other changes.

    Or you could try a plugin for another text editor.

    I have done exactly what you have said but this also doesn't solve the problem..

    What is the name of the plugin?

    Just to be sure, does the HTML code you are using work in a regular, static HTML page?

    There are various plugins -- you'd have to see if they will do what you want:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ckeditor-for-wordpress/

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ultimate-tinymce/

    I suppose this problem could be related to another plugin conflict and/or your theme? Have you tried deactivating all plugins and switching to a default theme just to test that?

    Plugin is awesome!!! but even after using that plugin and posting the article in HTML of the plugin the problem doesn't solved!!

    Yes.. I have tried deactivating all the installed plugins and switching the theme to the default one but still the problem is occurring..

    Then I'm guessing that what you are pasting into it has formatting that is causing the problems. Where is that text coming from?

    I think I have understand the issue..

    The Software by name UberToolz is doing the issue. I visited their website checked the whole conversion of the codes. There are particularly two types of coded. Extended and Standard. Even though both looks same but there is something different in those codes. The one which is causing the issue is Extended one. I have checked the article in standard code and it is looking perfectly fine...

    Let me also confirmed from the client...

    Yes, that's what I suggested in my first post. I'm glad you figured it out.
