copy paste text from MS Word?

  1. I was hoping to post the work of our community zoning commission. Is it too large? 140 pages. I copied it in from my computer in MS Word. I am a first time user. Please advise? Thank you, Jennifer

  2. Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    Copying and pasting text from elsewhere like WORD without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor creates a mess as WORD is not web compliant, please see here http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text
