2. Adding Text to Your Web Pages > 2.2. Copying and Pasting Text

Copying and Pasting Text

If you’re building Web sites as part of a team or for clients, your writers are likely to send you their copy in the form of word-processing documents. If the text comes in a Microsoft Word document or Excel spreadsheet, you’re lucky. Dreamweaver MX 2004 includes new commands for pasting text from these two types of files. If you’re using Windows, you can even import those kinds of files directly into a Web page using FileImportWord/Excel Document (see Section 2.4).

Simple Copy and Paste

For non-Microsoft-spawned text, you can, of course, still simply copy and paste like generations of Web designers before you.

Open the document in whatever program created it—WordPerfect, AppleWorks, your email program, or whatever. Select the text you want (by dragging through it, for example), or choose EditSelect All (Ctrl+A [-A]) to highlight all text in the document. Then choose EditCopy, or press Ctrl+C (-C), to copy it. Switch to Dreamweaver, click in the document window where you wish the text to go, and choose EditPaste (Ctrl+V [-V]).
