Default unwanted reformat

I am copying text in Times New Roman from 1 document to another that is
formatted in Times New Roman also. When I copy the text changes to Verdana,
the Normal format. How do I stop this reformat. I have WordXP. hanks.

The article implies this happened in older versions of Word, but I never had
this problem with Word2000.

Pasting text between documents can still give strange formatting in Word
2003 because of the effect of styles.

Take a look at the IncludeText tutorial at
http://addbalance.com/word/download.htm for examples of how pasted text
changes depending on styles in the source and destination documents. (While
this is about IncludeText fields, you get the same anomalies with pasting.)
