    I have text in a word document. I paste it into a .txt file to remove the formatting, which is does. I paste it in to the WordPress page and it is fine. I save it and it randomly puts words that are capitalised in Bold. I strip it out it puts it back.

    I am on the latest version of WordPress.

    I have tried:
    Taking the plain text in to an HTML editor and then pasting that in way
    pasting from word option
    pasting form txt option
    I have tried remove formatting option

    This works until I save and then it puts the bold text back
    I have disabled WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically
    I have tried firefox and I.E.

    Please help before my laptop goes out the window

    What plain text editor are you using for this?

    That should work. What happens if you add/type text manually into a new Post or Page?

    Found the problem. It was the Strcitly Auto Tags plugin. I gave a third party access to the site and they installed it
