There is a choice of types:  Content controls, Form Fields and Active X. The latter two can be found via the dropdown arrow to the left of the central divider in the Controls group.

If you don't need compatibility with Word 97 to 2003 documents, ignore these and choose from the front set.

surely you aren't suggesting that all responses are complete re-types of valid web-content? (e.g. http://office.microsoft.com/en-ca/word-help/create-forms-that-users-complete-or-print-in-word-HA101848148.aspx) - It would take hours to re-create such content, and probably not be as accurate or aesthetic.

Or are you saying that Microsoft is OK but YouTube isn't

One would assume, in the case of public-domain content, and in the absence of clearly displayed copyright notification, that links would be acceptable.

Competing forums, that do not have the above (and logins) are probably fair-game e.g. Microsoft.

If responders have to re-create content (with edits to avoid 'plagiarism') there would be far less participation in forums - time is money.

I any event, GrahamSkan, did you implement the dropdown satisfactorily?
