We have an exciting new tutorial - HTML101
In this tutorial, we have two editors. The first one is called "Yola HTML Helper". This editor will help you remove formatting from MS Word documents so you can safely add them to your page. Help you create tables easily, help you spell check your content and so on. Please refer to the list of buttons on the site for explanations on how it works.

The second one is called "Stripping MS Word formatting". Use this editor to strip out unwanted formatting from the HTML code of your text that has been already added to your site. This is help you resolve any existing MS Word text issues you are having or prevent any future problems that will arise from text that has been copied and pasted directly from MS Word.

Please try it out and give us feedback on how it works for you. Also let us know if there is anything else you would like to see added.

Looks great--I haven't tried it yet but I'm hoping the table will be much less finicky than Text Edit. Nice to have a Header 1 as well. It seems to me there was something else I was wishing for but can't think of it at the moment. :)
Any reason this one isn't replacing the one on the site builder? I suppose that takes more work?

There are a number of complex technical reasons why we can't implement this in the site builder right now. It has to do with how text editing works in the page in the context of a style in the site builder, which requires a different sort of editing. However, it is our hope that using this text editor will help generate valid markup that you can safely paste onto your site. If you use it, please give us your feedback. We would love to improve the text editor in the site builder, and any input you can give us would help with this.
