how do i import old confluence html

Ok. I am evaluating this Cloud-based Confluence to replace our existing installed Confluence.

I have enabled the Wiki Markup Plugin. 

What steps to I have to take within the document editor to allow me to copy a page of HTML from the old interface and paste it into the new document.

What's going on?
