HTML Editor in PowerCMS

Okay, I have a visual of the process in the attachments.

Step 1: I open up my source in Dreamweaver
Step 2: I copy and paste all info within the div
Step 3: I paste it into the Source into the HTML editor in PowerCMS
Step 4: I uncheck the Source button and it shows up like this
Step 5: When I click back on Source in clumps together like you see in the pic.

This is confusing the crud out of my clients and is making this function a difficult sell. If they ever have to view the Source to see what is going on it is impossible for them to understand it. I even have trouble sifting through it.

When they work on it through Internet Explorer or Firefox on PC or Mac they get different results. For instance, the return key function doesn't work if they are trying to add space between sections on the page. It looks like it's working but when they hit "Update" it essentially ignored the spacing request. I have to teach them to go into the Source and manually add line breaks. As noted above this becomes difficult because they have to view the Source to do it. I'm hoping that the upgrade will get a new editor and will be an easy update to the sites that I have put this function on.
