How can I keep an HTML string from losing characters when I paste into Confluence?

One of our programmers wants to past an HTML string into Confluence, but when she pastes the string (that contains pipe and tildes) some of the characters are lost. How can we keep that from hapening?

Hello there!

Perhaps you can put the string inside the Code Macro plugin?

There is also the noformat macro, which is similar in function to the code macro, but doesn't apply any fancy formatting or highlighting: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Noformat+Macro
