MS word question

Specs: Windows XP Home SP2, P4 1.5ghz 768 ram

When I copy and paste a document that I created in a notepad to MS word some of the words have green or red wavy lines under them. I think it has something to do with spelling and grammer but I am not very good with word. How do I stop these from ocurring?

Yes they are spelling and grammar notifications
if you really want to turn them off
Tools..Options..Spelling and Grammar
Hide spelling errors in this document
Hide grammatical errors in this document
look to the bottom of the page. You will see an open book that either has a pencil or a red X right click and the context menu will open to give you the hide options etc

You can switch them off as has been said, but would you
really not want Word to alert you of the errors that it finds?
They only appear noticeable because Notepad doesn't have
its own grammar and spelling checking facility built in.

I'd keep them switched on for your own good. Unless you
really don't care how the text comes out and just like it to
look pleasing on the eye while you're working!

Kristy, That is just what I want to do. I copy some pages from the internet that I want to read later, but my eyes aren't so great and trying to read note pad is not as easy as a word document. Thanks for the reply.
