Whenever I copy text from Wikipedia and paste it into Microsoft Word, there seem to be a pale blue in the text background. How do I get rid of this?

Hey, Thanks for answering, I have another problem


Sometimes when I missed a sentence or a word in the middle of a paragraph and wanted to type the missing words, the "new" words being type in "erases" the words "in front", where it should "move back" to accommodate the words tpyed in. This stops only when I restart MS Word, and when this fails, Reboot the OS. I 'm using MS office 2003 on Windows XP SP2, I notice this occurs on a separate PC running Windows 98SE, office 2000

i believe this is an easy solution too. it sounds like the "insert" mode is enabled. when your words start being typed over try pressing the "insert" key on your keyboard only once, then keep typing and it should not type over anymore. let me know what happens!
