Are you pasting it in the XML Source Editor or in the Page editor?

I'm not sure, I just click on "Edit"... so I guess it's Page editor.

Thank you for your help! I used the Source Editor, chose the HTML/XML and it looks as I wanted! :)

Okay, the problem is that Confluence likes to strip that stuff out on purpose, that's a goal. If you are on Confluence Server (not Cloud) you can use the included HTML macro to paste in HTML code OR you can use the free add-on Source Editor to make some edits. I think that's about all you can do.
