Hello,

here is the MS Word 2010 help page for paste options
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/paste-options-HA101831692.aspx

Here is some background from Word MVP Shauna Kelly
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/styles/formatoftextchanges.html

In #5 she explains that the options are worded differently in the user interface varieties, but mean the same thing.

cheers, teylyn
