Pasting content using the website's rich text editor is proving problematic.

  1. Here is a temporary work-around:
  2. Copy text into a clipboard from MS Word or another website,
  3. Click on the Input format option below the text area field that you are going to insert the text into.
  4. Select Filtered or Full HTML (depending on how much cleaning up you want)
  5. Then click on the Paste icon in the rich text editor's menu bar
  6. This will open up another input area for you to paste in your content

This should insert the formatted text into the text area.
