Converting hypercode to text
I often download pages from the internet into my word processor (OpenOffice). These pages contain numerous hyperlink codes.
Presently I must go to each reference, copy the hyperlink, then insert the result (beside the hyperlink) using paste, unformatted. This produces the text equivalent of the hyperlink.
Consider the problem of having a large document containing 10s, 100s of these hyperlinks.
Is there a faster method?
Many thanks for your consideration.

Perhaps it would be easier if you would first paste it into a text editor such as Notepad. Doing so will clean out a lot, if not all, of the non-text stuff.
Then copy it from Notepad and paste it into Open Office.

In Word, Using Ctrl-A, Ctrl-Shift-F9 will convert all your active links to plain text in once go. What you'll end up with is the display text instead of an active hyperlink. Note that this will also kill any other fields you have in the document (e.g. cross-references). The alternative is to select just the ranges having hyperlinks and press Ctrl-Shift-F9.
Check whether Open Office has anything equivalent.Cheers,
