BRINGING IN SEPARATE PARAGRAPHS FROM WORD
How many times has this happened to you? You highlight a bunch of paragraphs in Word and copy 'em. Switch to Dreamweaver and click paste. Yikes! All your nicely laid out paragraphs come in as one big block. Truth is, you haven't lost all your formattingDreamweaver interprets a single paragraph return as a line-break tag, <br>. Two returns, however, are changed to paragraph tags. So the moral is this: If you're copying multiple paragraphs from your word processing document, make sure your paragraphs are separated by two returns.
Bonus Tip! Change a <br> tag to a surrounding <p> in one move: With Invisible Elements turned on, select the <br> symbol and press Enter (Return)the line-break is gone and the text is now wrapped in a paragraph tag.
