When you're designing the content on your XSite, it's often convenient to take content that's already written in Microsoft Word or another third‑party software and paste it into the XSite Wizard. While this is a good concept, it can cause problems with the formatting on your page if you don't take care to perform this process properly.
HTML documents (web pages) are coded with very specific "tags" that indicate the formatting of a section of text. Documents created in programs like Microsoft Word also contain such "tags" but they are different than those used in HTML. The different tags both work when creating HTML documents, but clash with each other when used together. This problem IS NOT specific to XSites but is inherent to all HTML documents.
The most common issues caused by improper HTML formatting on your XSite are:
Follow the steps below to clean up the HTML on your XSite and instructions how to paste from a third‑party software without creating conflicting tags.
If you are not familiar with HTML, do not edit the HTML on your XSite as it can cause undesirable effects.
These steps remove some of the formatting created in the third‑party software and will help you avoid re‑formatting the content. For best results, use this method when pasting from third‑party software and format the content as you see fit once it is in the XSite editor.
