Hi, frequently, I need copy text from web site and past on Word. But when
doing so, the format are pasted as well. I have to past those text on
notebook first then copy and past on Word, in order to eliminate the format.
I am wondering if there is any way I can do this only using Word without the
help of notebook?

Hi GZ.,

If you're not using Word 2003 you can use Edit=>Paste Special
and choose unformatted text as the paste type. If you're
using Word 2003 you can turn on the [x] Show Paste Options button
and use that button when you paste to select 'text only'.

I believe the Paste Options button is available in Word 2002 as well.
