Clean HTML Content

When inserting one or more paragraphs that have already been formatted with another word processor (for example, Microsoft Word or OpenOffice), the size of the HTML code could increase considerably. These applications insert HTML code during export that is generally not useful for the Rich Text Editor.

With Rich Text Editor you can clean up the HTML code by using the Clean HTML Content button on the toolbar:

There are four options from which to choose:

The clean-up process applies to the current selection or, if no selection is made, the entire page. The result is cleaner, faster, more accurate code.

Note: The four options apply to the selection and its parent tag. For example, if you select two words in a <p>tag, the command will be applied to the entire paragraph.
