Pasting text from Word does not have span tags cleaned anymore
|Reported by:||mjaning||Owned by:|
I usually paste text copied from Word doc using the visual editor in the post page. After upgrading to WP v-3.1 the pasting process has stopped cleaning the <span> tags which normally contains font and style attributes coming from Word doc.
After several tests I concluded (I did not find indeed) that some issue came bundled with WP-v3.1 in the \wp-includes\js\tinymce\plugins\paste\editor_plugin.js which is responsible for taking care of pasting process.
For confirming this theory I have replaced the files under \wp-includes\js\tinymce\plugins\paste\ with the same files from a previous WP version. After that, the pasting process started working again. The cleaning process is now keeping the HTML code perfectly clean, and the span tags were removed.
It does not matter if I am pasting straight to the text or if I am using the Paste From Word button, the cleaning process is just working fine in both ways.
