    I am a super newbie. I tried to cut and paste a word document to post and it continues to frustrate. first it takes out all the paragraph breaks, i tried to fix that and then it ended up randomly changing the font size and inserting weird breaks and it just got worse from there. is there an easy way to do this or should i just retype it all or am i just retarded?

    Word, and its extraneous codes, is almost always a problem:

    If you must use it, then use the advanced toolbar (click on the last icon on the right on the standard tool bar to access it) and use Paste from Word.

    You’d probably have fewer headaches by writing in Notepad and formatting in the visual editor, or using the editor from the beginning.
