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.

How do you paste special and place it in unformatetted text?

After selecting and copying from the web:

In Word, Edit - Paste Special - Unformatted Text
