what is the default result of copy/pasting a MS Word file into the DropEditor? Just plain text? or do some tags get preserved (<i>, <emph> and other deprecated tags?)
Is it possible to "fine tune" (i.e. "tweak") the editor configuration so Word "styles" are transformed in the editor into CSS "classes"? So a paragraph with a "my_title" Word style becomes a paragraph with a "my_title" class. If that class exists and defines something appropriate for an article title, then no further modification to that paragraph should be required - at least in most cases. This would work similarly for styles that have classes with the same name that are applied to, for example, lyrics, quoted text, author bio, etc. It allows the articles to be written in Word by "writers" using a tool they are familiar with to be copied and pasted into the online editor and require little or no further manipulation as long as they use the same Word style names as are available to the articles online in CSS. Images, still have to be added to the article, but without the time spent learning how to use the online editor instead of Word, and having to either manually style the content ad hoc (leading to inconsistent, messier looking content) or to manually strip out old tags and then assign the appropriate classes to each paragraph so it has the right font, font-size, color, spacing, margins, etc.
I hope that is not too complex to follow in detail. Short version is just what is in the first sentence. in bold.
