If you copy text from a browser and paste it into Word then the default action is "paste as HTML", so you will get the formatting from the web page you copied the text from into the Word document. Usually, web pages formatting is different from the formatting for printed documents, the ones Word was made to work with, so the text will look different.
On Word, the paste button has a small down arrow. Click it and choose the "paste special" option and from there choose the "unformatted text" (or something like that, I'm using the Portuguese version of Word) option.
