Still need the answer to my question. You told me nothing.
1. File type
2. All the steps used to fax.

You can't "paste" into Windows XP Fax.

I agree it would be nice to know what the problem and the solution turned
out to be. From what little I could tell, I suspect the problem was with the
method used to send the fax. The usual solution to a problem with loss of
formatting while faxing is to use the Print To Fax command for sending the
fax so that the rendering of the document can be handled by the application
designed to do so. Fax software has very little to no native rendering
