Wiki - Pasting from Word - messing up the display

Not sure how recreatable this is but here it goes.

I am moving some technical documentation over from Word and into the Wiki so there is quite a bit of cut and paste going on...

I have a section that is bullet points with some sub-bullet points.  Some of the text contains quotes which word automatically converts from " into “ and ” (hope come across properly).  When that text is in the Wiki and I save and then view from the next line down to the end of the page everything becomes centered and goes the whole width of the page.  Once I replaced the fancy quotes with regular quotes everything displayed properly again.

I have been experimenting with this too. So far it has been a frustrating ordeal. I am basically pasting to notepad and then re-copying it to drop the formatting. It is easier to re-do the formatting from scratch that fix it once you copy over.

at least use this so you can skip the paste to notepad step...

Which browser are you using when you try to paste in the Word formatted lists?

Also, can you send us some example text in a Word document at customer-service@fogcreek.com?  I tried creating a bulleted list with sub-bullets and smart quotes in Word just now, and it posted with the appropriate formatting in both Firefox and IE7, so I'm clearly missing something.
