The Website Manager allows you to create a Text Page with rich text content along with images. To create a Text Page, add a new page and select Edit or edit an existing page and select the ’Text Page’ radio button in the ‘Change Page Type’ page, and click ‘Submit’ to load the page. What you see above is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) Rich Text Editor that functions similar to Microsoft Word or similar applications. Using this feature-rich editor, you can create an attractive web page with rich text content for your website.

You can either type in the web page content, or even copy & paste the content from *Microsoft Word or other similar applications or even from a web page.

[Note: When content is copied and pasted from Microsoft Word or similar applications not all of the properties will function properly in the editor because some of the fonts, color classes, tags such as VML, MSO etc. are not supported in the website builder. Also, the website builder does not support the use of dual monitors for editing.]
