Hummm, interesting. To test my desire, I opened a new doc in Word, typed 10 or so lines in different font sizes, bold, italics, then highlighted, copied it, then pasted it into a Yahoo! Mail (compose) text editor I had open. The formatting transfered to the text editor (what I pasted looked the same as what was in Word), and I sent the email to my work email account (on Lotus Notes). The formatting was intact upon receipt in my Lotus Notes email. So, with that successful test behind me, I assumed that the formatted text could, if fact, be saved and presented on a web page. Am I mistaken?
You do present an interesting argument, that since the text wasn't entered into the web formatted text editor, the editor wouldn't know the formatting, unless the tags were somehow created by an intelligent save function. ??
The cut-n-paste part from Word is not really the core need, though. If I could just get the capability to add the formatted text editor to the web page, that would suffice. I think the users would be satisfied using that, too.
You've helped me before, and I really appreciate your valuable input. Thanks.
