Default Are there any other copying options?

I have WindowsXP SP3 Word2003


Often I have to copy HTML text from a web page and then
insert it into a letter.

This means I have to go through the step of the "paste
special" as "unformatted text" step.

Is there any way to *copy* anything as "unformatted text" in
the first place and so avoid the 'paste special' rigmarole?

Please help, Frank

You could create a macro that, when you run it, would paste clipboard
contents in "Unformatted Text" format. Try the following:

Sub PasteUnformatted()
On Error Resume Next
Selection.PasteSpecial DataType:=wdPasteText
End Sub

Attach the macro to a toolbar button and/or assign a key combination to it;
see http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm.
