Sorry for the delay, never got the e-mail notice there was a post.
So I guess Constant Contact was right in the end. Notepad DOESN'T strip the code from Word.
I had to submit an article to a blog (not sure what blog software they were using) & sure enough, I went into html & there was Word code in there.
Not sure how to tell you what code it is other than it was at the bottom & it said Word & there was a lot of it. I'm not a coder, so I can't read it & tell you.
Could have been the comments that I had inserted in the text much earlier on in the article, it could have been formatting code. I don't know & really don't care, all I care about is the fact that it didn't strip it like I though it was supposed to.
Now I don't know if this is happening to only software that sucks (this blog software looks really old & dated & of course so is Constant Contact), but even if the software I'm copying to uses old outdated code, that has nothing to do with notepad not stripping it.
Geeze, just nuts. Now I don't know what to do.
