Default Need help copy and pasting from internet to word, font change sizes.

Hi all.

I have windows vista home premium and microsoft word student 2007 edition.
I am copy and pasting some various articles from the internet to use as quotes in an essay I have to complete.
The problem is, when I copy and paste from the website, the font stays the same as what it was when I got it from the website, so I have to change the size and style every time in word.
Is their a way I can format the word document, so no matter what the font looks like before copying and pasting, it will still look the same in microsoft word?

Basically I want to be able to copy and paste from specific websites without having to re change the size and style in word, I want word to do it automatically, I never used to have this problem.
I have a table that I copy and paste to, so is their a way to format the table so all font that goes in is the same?




Thanks all.

That is so super annoying!

I'm not too sure about Vista...In older Words I usedta' just click on the little clipboard that pops up straight after you paste something, and select the formatting option there.

But in 2007 it's just a few clicks away! Yipee!

First Click the Office button.
Click the Word Options button.
Click the Advanced thingie.
Under Cut, Copy, And Paste click the drop-down arrow of the Pasting From Other Programs box
Aaaaaand select Match Destination Formatting.
Then Ok.

Give that a go!
