Pressing ALT+B inside TinyMCE causes another toolbar to show on with
Built-in "Paste from Word" and "Paste as Plaint Text" buttons.

No need to remove RTE, just tell users this functionality and also make'em
aware about problem of pasting from Word.

Macromedi(Adobe) Dreamweaver has a great built-in functionality, It cleans
up MS Word HTML on the fly (on CTRL+V) and make them Valid XHTML. It would
be a nice feature to be added to TinyMCE.
