Sorry if this is in the wrong place, it seemed to be the area dealing with 'the forum' generally.

I wanted to ask, I seem to have a nightmarish time when trying to cut n paste script
onto the forum. It never posts 'as is' - it ends up with me manually having to reduce the sudden spaces, line by line, taking half an hour or more to get a chunk of script looking faintly readable.

What am I not doing, or missing, in the controls above the posting form? If I try to directly cut n paste from Word, I end up with double spaces, and long lines of text that dont break where they should. If I cut n paste from Word to notepad, they seem slightly better, but still require crazy amounts of time to get looking 'normal'..

I kind of gave up yesterday, trying to clean up a new segment of script that I wanted to post, as it was just taking forever to do..

Hopefully there's just some simple dumb thing that I'm not doing - as everyone else seems to be posting material, without needing to spend a lot of time cleaning it up.. can anyone advise? (I'm using Firefox btw - not sure if this has something to do with it or not)
