CTRL + SHIFT + V: Write your abstract first - in Google Docs or Microsoft Word, for instance, where you can count words, use spellcheck, etc. - then copy & paste it into the abstract-submission form, using CTRL + SHIFT + V, which pastes just the text (no formatting). This will avoid some of the add characters and leftover code, so your abstract will look "clean" upon submission.
