    I copy and past text from web pages into Word 2000 quite a bit. Much of the time, the lines within the paragraph have spacing between all the lines that ranges from an extra half-line to an extra full line of blank space between the lines.

    How do I remove this extra line spacing? The same settings that usually do it for everything else, will not work for the text pasted from web pages.

    Have you tried, after copying the text, going to Edit, Paste Special, Unformatted Text (or Unformatted Unicode Text, which will get rid of some other things, like indentations for bullet points)?
    (there are other things you can do but they generally entail another step, such as pasting into a text editor first)

    Nope. I never understood what "Paste Special" was for.

    I'll try it.
