Question Copy and Paste

This is a first post. I'm old to computers, but new to Sigil so forgive a dumb question.

After downloading Sigil and reading the manual, I decided to try to simply use the mouse right click to copy a multi-page document I had written in Word - then use the same right click method to paste the document into Sigil. Then in Code view, I ran the two clean-up buttons and nothing changed. Then, after entering the title, author, and language in the Meta Editor, it 'validated'. Saving my validated EPUB file to my desktop, I Emailed it to my iPAD as an attachment. I was very surprised to find that it formatted and read perfectly in all four of my EPUB readers - with the exception that I did not have a blank line between paragraphs - something easily fixed.

From what I read, this is not the way to do it. I'll accept that, but since it is so simple, and seems to work fine, I'd like to know why not.

Thanks!
