I would agree that the slow-down is probably associated with copy/pasting
from Publisher to Word.

When I paste in text from other sources (applications, the Web, etc.), I
always use Paste-->Unformatted Text, then use Word's format painter or
Styles dropdown to format the text in Word. I recommend using this method
for any new cut/pasting.

For the already-pasted text, the only thing I can think of is taking a few
extra hours (which would pay for themselves later, if they resolve the
problem) to highlight the suspect pasted text and click "Clear All" in the
Styles dropdown, then reapply formatting using format painter (based on some
un-suspect text) or the Styles.

And, I assume you HAVE tried the usual "when in doubt, reboot." J

Good luck!
