Support » Fixing WordPress » Paste from Word issues

  • Generally speaking when pasting from Word I paste as plain text to get rid of all the bad code word uses. However a client has given me several Word documents with lots of bold and italic and I dont want to spend ages re-formatting the text so I have been trying to use the Paste from Word button.

    I noticed the paste from word button only works on .docx files not .doc files. It then removes the code but it uses <b> instead of and <i> instead of
    <b> and <i> are not deprecated according to W3C but and <i> show emphasis so it is better to use for SEO purposes (so Ive read).

    I have now been using Dreamweaver to replace the tags but this seems like loads of work. Does anyone have a better solution?

    My method would be too complicated for a client.

    Any thoughts welcome 🙂
