IE8 - Internet Explorer truncating content on Word Tags

Hi All,

I have a site that has a bit of content that has been pasted directly from Word. Although I warn clients against this, the odd paragraphs that are added at a later date do slip through.

I have found that this is only a problem in IE8. IE7 and Firefox seem to render the pages just fine.

In IE8 however, when the rendered page gets down to the point where the Word MSO tags are located, everything there-after is truncated from the screen. It's simply not there, even though checking the source shows that the rest of the HTML is actually being delivered to the browser.

I can't find anything online IE8 specific. Has anyone seen this and had any luck in explaining it?
