    I would guess that you have just done a straight copy and paste, which may have embedded the text in a table from the website.

    Try copying the text to a new document but use Paste Special, and Unformatted Text as the option in Word.

    After selecting and copying from the web:

    In Word, Edit - Paste Special - Unformatted Text
