When you try to copy and paste text that is contained in a hyperlink on a Web page in OneNote 2003, the text does not appear as a hyperlink.

For example, if you copy hyperlink text that says "Click Here" (without quotation marks) from a Web site, and then paste the hyperlink text in OneNote 2003, "Click Here" appears in plain text.
This problem occurs because OneNote 2003 does not support hyperlinks that are attached to text or graphics.
To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office OneNote 2003 Service Pack 1.

To work around this problem, type the Web site address in the OneNote 2003 document. The text of the Web site address resolves to a Web site address that you can click.

For example, instead of typing "Click here for more information" (without quotation marks) in OneNote 2003, type "Click here (www.msn.com) for more information" (without quotation marks).
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
This problem was first corrected in OneNote 2003 Service Pack 1.
