    for some reason the only way i can get it to copy and paste from the web, is to go to Edit->Paste special and select unformatted text and it will paste it. Does anyone know how i can get it to stay on unformatted text or how i can fix my problem?

    That's the way that Wordpad works, you have to paste plain text into it. Apparently, the HTML is not something that WordPad is able to deal with.

    Well, it works the same way here on W2K or XP, so I've got to believe that it's designed that way...
