Text Block Formatting

The website Text Block defaults to a family of fonts and sizes.  What is displayed to the visitor is determined by their browser.  The system recognizes the user's browser and displays the text in the best font and size available.  If you do a straight copy & paste from a Word documents or from an existing website, you will override this "best available" font and size feature of the website.  Many times this is OK and is not an issue but sometimes it can cause problems with certain browsers and the HTML code will actually be displayed on the page.  It is recommended to use the "Paste from Word" tool which should clean up most HTML code from Word.

With that said, it may still be worth the extra time and effort to strip the text "naked" of the background HTML code and use our Text Block to format the content in order to guarantee the best viewing.  To do this, it is a good practice to have a version of NOTEPAD open.  Copy the original text into Notepad - this step strips off all formatting, i.e. bold, centering, size, etc.  Then copy out of Notepad into the website Text Block content window.  Use the Text Block formatting functions for bold, bullets, centering.

In addition, tables copied from other sources can also cause issues and the formatting will not look right on the pages.  It is recommended to use our Table Builder page element to re-create the information.

Both these suggestions will take a few additional minutes compared to the straight copy/paste method but in the long-run, you will have a much better looking and consistent web page with content that will be easier to update as you move forward.
