Copy and Pasting from a newbie
« on: June 20, 2009, 01:07:27 AM »
Thanks for HE, this is a helpful program for me. I am not a programer so I apologize for the rudimentary question.

If I copy this:
Code: [Select]
        function footer( )
{
echo '';
}

And paste it, I get this:
Code: [Select]
SPAN {font-family: "Courier New";font-size: 10pt;color: #000000;background: #FFFFFF;}A {text-decoration: none;font-weight: bold;color:#000000;}.S4 {color: #009300;background: #FFF7F7;}.S5 {color: #7D9EC0;background: #FFF7F7;}.S2 {background: #FFF7F7;}.S1 {color: #0000FF;background: #FFF7F7;}.S3 {color: #7D9EC0;background: #FFF7F7;}
function footer( )    {        echo '';    }

Can someone please help me understand how to paste the same thing that I copy?

Thanks!

Hello kdbates,

welcome.

It looks like that destination (place where you paste the text) request it in HTML format, and get it in HTML.
Normally HE provides 3 format : Text, RTF and HTML, and destination application selects that one, which suit more.

So where you have paste the text?

Best regards,
Alex.
