Pasting multilingual Word docs with "Paste Word" and WLW

  1. I've used both the "Paste word" button & WLW to paste Word into my blog. However I occasionally use Greek & Hebrew words in my docs which don't display properly when pasted. I just need them to be displayed not translated (perhaps embedded?).
    Its odd because after clicking on the "Paste Word" button & pasting the text into the pop up window, the Heb/Grk is properly displayed. Yet once I insert the text into the WP editor the Heb/Grk is displayed as random English letters. Apparently the WP can't read the fonts.
    The result is the same when pasting and posting from WLW. However, I noticed that if I use "paste special" instead of "paste" the Heb/Grk display properly in my post.
    Any solutions? Does the "paste special" include the extraneous Word code I'm trying to avoid? My blog is new so I don't wan't to create issues for the future.

  2. Can we get a link to your blog, starting with http?

  3. @seamusaa
    G'day. Will you please post the link for the blog you refer to starting with http:// when posting to the forum?
    Alternatively you can link your username to your blog. It’s very easy to do. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard –> Users –> Your Profile. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ and fill in the address of your blog and then click ‘Update Profile‘.

    Once you’re done click “Update Profile”. Voila! Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

  4. Ah yes..profile updated with blog. I'm just getting started so my one "rough" post is a sample of a teaching outline.

  5. The blog you posted the link for is not a wordpress.COM blog. We provide support only for wordpress.COM blogs. Please head over to http://wordpress.ORG/support and post your support questions there as you are in the wrong forum.
