It also depends on what type of paste Word does. These days, the default mode for paste seems to be Paste as HTML (at least some of the time), which is a disaster. I've had to spend time cleaning up the mess resulting when authors paste tables from email into Word. They (the tables, not the authors) turn into HTML tables and thus behave oddly.

Using Paste Special - Unformatted avoids that, as do the other methods recently discussed for pasting plain text. The text ends up styled according to whatever the style is for the paragraph at the cursor.

Using Paste Special - RTF is a sort of intermediate. It keeps formatting and styles, which is useful if you are pasting between documents that share a template. If the docs have different templates, the styles get added; I haven't experimented to see how much text it takes these days to transfer the style.

Word does offer endless fun.
