If you’ve ever copy-and-pasted a snippet of information from a Web page into a word processor, you’ve seen what a mess the formatting can cause. To get the text without the formatting, start by copying the desired phrase into your Windows clip board (Edit/Copy or Cntrl C.) In Microsoft Word, use Edit/Paste (or Cntrl-V), select the tiny clipboard icon, and choose Keep Text Only. In Corel Word Perfect, use Edit/Paste Special/Unformatted Text.
