First paragraph goes missing from field to browser

Hi! I have a Rich Text editable field in a form, which is designed to store text content I captured from Web pages. And I have a Web Domino server publishing documents based on the form.

The problem is always the first paragraph of text I copied into the field is missing in my browser. I viewed the HTML source, and it seems Domino did not pass this part to the browser.

When I'm editing a document in Lotus Notes, first I copy text I need from a Web page, then I choose Edit -- Paste Special -- Text to paste the text as unformatted text into the field.

I have found that CTRL-A, CTRL-X, Paste Special and Paste as "Text" can make the missing part visible. I cannot figure out why it happens. Please help me. Thanks a lot in advance.
I'm sorry, I don't know how to help you here. In my experience your method of pasting, using Paste Special and then choosing Text is a good cure for all kinds of problems that you might experience when pasting text that is somehow formatted in the source.
