Cleaning up Word text in FrontPage 2000

If you paste content from Word 2000 into FrontPage 2000, you also paste a lot of extra formatting codes. To see these codes for yourself, switch to HTML view after pasting.

To avoid these extra tags, don't choose Paste from the Edit menu.

Instead, choose Paste Special. In the dialog box that appears, choose Normal Paragraphs and click OK. Your text appears, minus the extra formatting tags. You'll have to redo the formatting in FrontPage itself, but the technique can still be a timesaver.
