If you use Word, I assume that you work under Windows and you will lack
flexibility. You can install Cygwin (www.cygwin.com) to get Linux
functionality, which will enable you to do the following.
If the page is located at ADDRESS, run the following command:
wget -r -l2 -t1 -N -np -erobots=off ADDRESS
This assumes internal links, but can be modified as necessary (see 'man
You should then have a directory (or several directories) with all the text
(hopefully not hypertext, which complicates things). You can then append
the files using 'cat' (see 'man cat').
I am afraid that I see no simpler alternatives. If you don't perform this
task often, then it is not worth the investment.
