Why am I getting technical specs in my draft blog when i preview?

  1. I just posted a draft for a new blog. But in addition to the draft language it posted a long list of technical stats like for example the following.

    alse
    false
    false

    EN-US
    X-NONE
    X-NONE

    /* Style Definitions */
    table.MsoNormalTable
    {mso-style-name:”Table Normal”;
    mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0;
    mso-tstyle-colband-size:0;
    mso-style-noshow:yes;
    mso-style-priority:99;
    mso-style-qformat:yes;
    mso-style-parent:”";
    mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4p

    Why is this happening and how do i delete this out of my draft?

    The blog I need help with is bobnowlinsblog.wordpress.com.

  2. You edit the post and go into the Text (HTML) editor and remove that formatting junk code. For editing see:

    You are copying and pasting from Microsoft WORD but failing to do that in the correct manner. Microsoft Word is a word processing program that’s not compliant with web standards. The result of copy and pasting from Microsoft Word into the Tiny MCE editor in WordPress blogs can be unexpected, and contain a lot of formatting code that's not compliant unless you know how to use the built-in features in the Visual editor for using Word cleanly. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    Go here and enable this > Settings > Writing
    Formatting
    _ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically
    "save changes"

    I recommend using Windows Live Writer for posting to your blog > http://en.support.wordpress.com/xml-rpc/windows-live-writer/
