I am trying to copy and paste parts of a web page onto a Word document, but when I try either by the normal copy and paste method, or the drag and drop, I only get some writing on the document and some boxes. No pictures appear, and the layout is all over the place. Can anyone help on this?

Would it be any better to use Shift+Cmd+4 and take a screenshot of the bits you want?

Yes, I agree with skaheadpunk. The other thing that came to mind you could try is go to the menu bar File>mail contents of this page. That will open up a new email with the page it. You could try to copy/paste from there.
