    wh?t ??u'r? looking ?t and come u? w?th ways of und?r?t?nd?ng her,

    There is a button in the visual editor to paste the Microsoft's formatted text. If you used this, what text encoding do you use for the WordPress site? Do you use a custom or the default system font set? – Max Yudin Mar 8 '17 at 21:23

You have 3 options:

  1. Disable it in your Word, go to Word > Preferences > General then clear the check for Include formatted text in Clipboard. This is a global setting by the way so any cut/copy will render un-formatted text.
  2. Click on this icon:

  1. Use notepad, copy the content to notepad then copy it from notepad to WordPress.
